All excited: Participants handing over their Starwalk registration forms at the Teachers Training College in Gelugor, Penang.
OUTDOOR activities and physical training have always been a big part of Khor Aik Keong’s life.
The 46-year-old lecturer from the Teachers Training College in Gelugor, Penang, has climbed Mount Kinabalu and is also a member of a voluntary reserve unit of the Royal Malaysian Army.
“I always find something to do to keep myself fit. Joining this year’s Starwalk for the second time is definitely going to be fun,” said Khor after signing up for the walk at the college.
However, for second year student Kalaiselvi, 28, this will be the first time she is taking part in the walk.
“I’m taking Physical Education as a minor for my degree in Tamil Studies. This is the first time I’m registering for the walk due to the encouragement from my lecturer who has been a regular in the past four years,” said Kalaiselvi.
“Hopefully, I will gain something useful for my studies in Physical Education,” she added.
Student Hilman Norman, 26, who signed up with four of his friends, also said this was the first time he was joining Starwalk.
“I’m confident that I can complete it since I have taken part in many jogathons. I’m also a member of the Scout Association in my college and I have been active in all outdoor activities since my schooling days.
“I saw the advertisement in The Star and decided to join this outdoor group activities with my friends. I will mark this as part of my annual activities,” added Hilman.
Khor, Kalaiselvi and Hilman were among 50 students and lecturers from the college who signed up for the walk yesterday.
