KUALA LUMPUR: The spirit of camaraderie was very much evident as VIPs, celebs and ordinary Malaysians bearing flags and wristbands made their way to the final leg of the #AnakAnakMalaysia Walk 2016 here on Sunday morning. 

Participants were seen in good spirits, laughing and talking with each other as they walked the 3.4km route along Jalan Pudu. 

Some even took the opportunity to see the other side of Kuala Lumpur without the heavy traffic. Of particular interest were the old buildings and eateries.  

One of the participants, Sam Tan, was nostalgic as he delightedly pointed his old hangout. 

Celebrities spotted during the hour-long walk were bodybuilder Sazali Samad, designer Datuk Jimmy Choo, comedian Harith Iskandar, actresses Lisa Surihani and Elaine Daly.  

Sazali said it was a rare occasion for him to be able to participate in the walk with fellow Malaysians, as he was always busy at competitions overseas.   

"I feel this walk is great as it promotes good health.  

"You also do not feel tired by walking with fellow Malaysians,” Sazali said, adding that he was proud to be a Malaysian.  

Also spotted along the route were avid Pokemon Go players with some exclaiming in joy whenever they caught one. 

Next on the agenda are lucky draw sessions.

Participants of the #AnakAnakMalaysia Walk 2016 were flagged off at the Bukit Bintang City Centre here at 7.30am.

The 3.4km walk started from the junction of Jalan Imbi and Jalan Pudu at the site of the former Pudu Jail, and was flagged off by Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz.

The #AnakAnakMalaysia Walk is organised by Star Media Group in collaboration with Ecoworld. 

Other sponsors for the event include Car Sponsor: Proton, Gold Sponsor: Panasonic and Silver Sponsors: Tenaga Nasional and YES.
