29 September 2018 being World Heart Day, I am happy to walk my way to a healthier heart while helping National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM) and Institut Jantung Negara Foundation (IJNF). Funds raised from Walk2Inspire 2018 will be channelled to these two organisations.
I am Hillman Au, Chief Agency Officer of Manulife Insurance Berhad and I pledge to complete 10,000 steps at the Walk2Inspire event if I am able to raise RM5,000 through PeopleGiving by Manulife.
Many researches have shown that helping others is good for your heart and your health. The act of volunteering, donating or reaching out to those in need, greatly impacts your physical and mental health by reducing stress and depression.
These altruistic acts also contribute to living a longer life. Interestingly, walking gives the same benefits as well! In the words of Mother Theresa, “do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person”, so let us all play our part to give to those in need while caring for our health.
I do hope that you would take this opportunity to help me raise funds for a good cause. Thank you for your support.
