  RIVER FUN WALK TO CELEBRATE THE IMPORTANCE OF CITY RIVERS

Thursday 13/09/2018



KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 (Bernama) -- In conjunction with the upcoming International World Rivers Day 2018 celebration, the Sungai Bunus Action Group,  a community volunteer-based  group, a partner of the Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL) Local Agenda 21 (LA21KL), will be organizing the inaugural Bunus Fun Walk 4 River on Sunday, September 29th. from 7.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m.
 
EcoKnights, a local nonprofit environmental NGO and also a member of the Sungai Bunus Action Group, is taking the lead in organizing the Bunus Fun Walk 4 River, which involves a fun walk of 3.5 km around the Bunus River Retention Pond to symbolize the distance marginalized communities would have to walk in order to have access to clean river water. Apart from the fun walk, the public will also have the opportunity to participate in restoration activities, educational workshops and activities.
 
Chairman of the Sungai Bunus Action Group, Yasmin Rasyid said, “We are now calling out for partnerships from corporate organizations to support the Fun Walk through various sponsorship packages. The Fun Walk will cater to 1000 participants and apart from members of the public, we are hopeful that the business community will also join us in this effort and benefit their employees in terms of awareness, and engagement.”
 
“The Bunus Fun Walk 4 River is also a fundraising program where we aim to raise at least RM15, 000 to help the group scale-up and enhance the existing community urban farms that exist in several areas along the 9 km Bunus River,” added Yasmin.
 
Members of the public are encouraged to sign up to participate in the Bunus Walk 4 River at www.ecoknights.org.my/bunusw4r.
 
“We hope that we will gain the support of the public and businesses in making this inaugural event a success and an annual public event for the city”, concluded Yasmin.
