It was spectacular. I’ve wrote before about ‘Jelajah Malaysia 2008’ and how i envied their mental and physical strength. But this is even more than that, here is the article I took from NST.

A showcase of special talent

2009/11/09

KUALA LUMPUR: It was no ordinary marathon when about 400 disabled people took part in the 16th Annual Charity Walk, Jog or Wheel-a-thon at Dataran Merdeka here yesterday.

The event, organised by the Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor and Federal Territory (SCAS & FT), was held in conjunction with its golden jubilee celebrations.

A percussion band, comprising members with cerebral palsy, showed off their mettle, while children with CP participated in a race that demonstrated routine exercises, such as walking with a walker and crawling through a cardboard box.

“These exercises may be easy for most children, but they are a challenge for those with cerebral palsy. However, the children do them with a smile,” said SCAS & FT president Datuk Dr Lam Peng Chong.

The highlight of the event was a dance performance by Reizo Zen, dubbed Malaysia’s Michael Jackson. Zen mimed and danced to three songs from the HIStory album.

Lam said 30 non-governmental organisations and sponsors raised RM350,000 for the charity walk. Part of the funds will go towards the association’s redevelopment programme.

“The redevelopment programme involves replacing our 50-year-old building with a six-storey block, at a cost of between RM12 million and RM16 million.

“We will be able to enrol more children into therapy programmes and provide better training facilities, a dormitory, an auditorium and an exhibition hall,” Lam said.

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Senator Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil pledged RM50,000 in aid after launching the event yesterday.

Marathon in Dataran Merdeka

Marathon in Dataran Merdeka

Winners to one of the disabled=We have normal bodies and such, sometimes don’t bother about charity marathon. So I think we should take them as exemplary.

Kayuh.. kayuh.. kayuh laju-laju

Hi there,

Yesterday I saw a 60-years-old man cycling around a park near my house, thus reminded me about an event called ‘Jelajah Malaysia 2008’. Although it’s a national event but the closing ceremony was held at Dataran Merdeka on 26th April 2009 in wet weather. The event took 13 months, can you imagine that? The truth is I didn’t know about the event even though it was yearly event till the event at Dataran Merdeka. I was around at that time and when I heard about the whole event, I really admired their mental and physical strength.

Here are some of the pictures I took at that time. Maybe one day I’ll join the competition. ^_^
