With the Raza of Janab Aamil Saheb Alhaddul Anjabul Asad Aliasger Bhaisahen Zakiuddin, Shabab ul Eidiz Zahabi Singapore organised the first ever Walkathon 2016! The Walkathon was held on one of the trails of the unique Green Corridor.
A total of 103 mumineen, mumenaat and children participated in the event. Buses were catered for mumineen to ferry them from Burhani Masjid to the starting point and back.
Janab Aamil Saheb flagged off the walk at The Rail Mall (Upper Bukit Timah Road). Participants were given a list of things to do such as taking a video of them making a choo choo train on the defunct rail tracks, taking a selfie of themselves sitting on the rail track and more.
Along the way, pit stops were organised for mumineen to refresh themselves. Children were given little toys for them to play and continue walking.
The first pit stop was manned by Mubaraka bai Shk Abbas bhai Bhavnagarwala, Umme Kulsum bai Shk Husain bhai Khanali, Umme Hani bai Shk Najmuddin bhai Shakir and Umme Aiman bai Shk Najmuddin bhai Shakir. They distributed refreshing juice, popsicles (referred to as air batu) and bubbles (for the children).
The second pit stop was available after a tougher and muddier section of the trail which was manned by Hasan bhai Shk Hakimuddin bhai Khumusi who distributed wonderful Iced Lemon Tea. Participants were refreshed to complete the last leg of the trail.
The third pit stop manned by Yusuf bhai Hussainy had rejuvenating 100 Plus and another toy for the children.
The participants finally reached the final destination, The Bukit Timah Railway Station.
The participants were then treated to snacks, drinks and lunch - picnic style. The event ended with a group photo, laughter, joy and of course, tired legs.
May Allah Ta'ala grant our Aqa Maula (TUS) a long and healthy life till the day of Qayamat. Ameen.
