Almost 800 participants walked 10,000 steps around Seri Austin township in the “10,000 Steps @ Seri Austin” event co-organised by Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and UMLand Seri Austin. It was held at Taman Seri Austin in support of Hari Sukan Negara 2017 which was celebrated nationwide.
Speaking at the event, State Vice President of TM Johor, Ahmad Nasri Mohamed commended UMLand Seri Austin on the initiative towards promoting healthy lifestyle and environmental conservation.
“Not many people are active in sports, hence walking is perhaps one of the easiest ways to start exercising. I am glad that we have collaborated with TM to bring this event to the people of Seri Austin,” said Chief Executive Officer and Acting Group Director of UMLand Townships, K.K. Wong.
”We are also proud to introduce Poesy Liang, a design entrepreneur, multidisciplinary designer, humanitarian and motivational speaker. Apart from her volunteer causes that seek to serve the marginalised, Poesy also takes climate change and green matters seriously as she sees the importance of preserving Mother Nature. At Seri Austin, she introduced her signature – Rooftop Cats (RTC), Harry Putter on a zero carbon flying broom. Through her artworks, Poesy employs a whimsical approach to encourage people to strive to be more energy efficient – in line with Seri Austin as the First Smart Healthy City and Communities in Iskandar Malaysia. Those efforts are part of UMLand’s strong advocacy on providing sustainable and green living.,” added Wong.
At the event there were more than 10 booths showcasing healthy products, and health consultations were offered including blood pressure test, sleeping test and mental health status test and in addition, there were meals on wheels for the public to enjoy with a range of food trucks selling tasty treats.
