Walk together to stay together

Family time and bonding are buzzwords for these participants in the National Steps Challenge The New Paper Big Walk 2017.

Retired general manager Lim Teng Kiat, 50, will be walking for the third time. His previous Big Walks were in 2000 and 2004, when the event was still held at the National Stadium.

Mr Lim told The New Paper: “In 2000, I took part with my elder son, Roy, who was a young boy then. He is 21 years old now and unable to join us this year because of university exams. “In 2004, I was accompanied by Roy, my mother and my brother. This year, I will be accompanied by my wife and 17-year-old son, Ryan.”He added: “The Big Walk has been great family bonding times for me and my family and I have fond memories of it…”
