Sunday morning saw me making my way to Dataran MBI to get some shots of a Walkathon held in conjunction with National Organ Donation Awareness Week, from 14th to 24th October, 2011. The theme of the walkathon was “Walk for Life” and it was great to see so many people getting involved in the event. At first, I thought that the Walkathon did not receive much support; well, it was because I was there one hour earlier than I should. Duh!

Organ donation is a much misunderstood cause. Hopefully, with a healthy family activity like a walkathon, it would increase awareness for the deed and how it could be beneficial to those who are in need of healthy organs. It is also a platform to dispel misconceptions and to educate the public on the different organs that could be donated.
