BESUT: Mohd Noor Mat, 42, has started on the first lap of the Walk4Malaysia programme, which covers a distance of 600km, from Kuala Besut in Terengganu to Putrajaya, accompanied by participants from the Sports Council of Terengganu and the State Youth Council.
They were flagged off yesterday morning from Dataran Kuala Besut by Kuala Besut assemblyman Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abdul Rahman who represented Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said.
Earlier, they did aerobics together with more than 500 participants, comprising students, NGO members and heads of department and their staff.
They will make 13 pre-determined stops during their walk which is expected to take 13 days until they reach Putrajaya on Oct 4.
Mohd Noor, a Terengganu Islamic Foundation staff member, who hails from Kampung Tok Raja, Jerteh, has a wife and seven children aged between four and 22.
Looking healthy and fit after his own training for the past two months, he knelt on the road before starting and sought blessings to enable him to complete his journey successfully.
Mohd Noor is fulfilling a vow to walk from Kuala Besut to Putrajaya following Barisan Nasional’s victory in the Kuala Besut state by-election recently. — Bernama
