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 Justin Helferich, Chief Financial 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.
As said by American poet John Holmes, “there is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” Walking is one of the best acts of care for our heart; a vital organ that never takes a break to feed oxygen to our body. And to do it on World Heart Day, to raise awareness and funds for two organisations that are reaching out to stroke and heart patients; I couldn’t ask for a better deed for the well-being of my heart.
