“Let’s together lead a healthy lifestyle through healthy social activities with your loved ones!”
This was the message behind Ipoh Car Free Day Fun Run 2019 held during the Ipoh Car Free Day Campaign near KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital. The event was organised in conjunction with World Heart Day Celebration and Pink October, a breast cancer awareness campaign.
Executive Director of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital Roslan Ahmad emphasised the importance for all to lead a healthy lifestyle through a healthy diet, regular exercise and stress reduction.
Roslan Ahmad also said, “Individual behavioural modifications are important, especially those related to one’s lifestyle. Exercising, eating healthy food, avoiding alcohol and foodstuff containing polyunsaturated fat and lower calorie intake are all important.”
For the first time, KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital organised Ipoh Car Free Day Fun Run 2019, with the hospital receiving more than a thousand participants. Besides fun run, the event offered many other exciting programmes, which aimed to educate the public on the importance of heart health and breast cancer awareness and to empower Malaysians to make positive choices for their health.
This event, a collaborative effort with Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh, was flagged off by Perak Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal bin Dato’ Azumu.
