NESTLE OMEGA PLUS’s month-long Walk A Million Miles event returns this September, for the third year running. Themed ‘Jom Malaysia, Langkah Bersama, Jantung Dijaga’, Walk A Million Miles 2022 aims to inspire Malaysians across the nation to pledge for their heart health and start walking together for 30 days this September during World Heart Month.
“According to the Ministry of Health Malaysia high cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, the main killer disease which affects more than 8 million adults in Malaysia. This is why we work with partners like Yayasan Jantung Malaysia (YJM) and Institut Jantung Negara Foundation (IJNF) to organize events like Walk A Million Miles,” said Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of NESTLÉ Malaysia.
“To date, more than 25,000 Malaysians have participated in the NESTLE OMEGA PLUS Walk A Million Miles from all over the nation and together we have walked over 2.5 million miles through our two previous editions. This year, we want to galvanize even more Malaysians to join us in this fight against heart disease and cholesterol. We urge Malaysians to take care of their own heart health as well as to encourage their friends, families and colleagues at work to join us in this journey towards a heart healthy nation,” he added.
To further empower Malaysians to start walking to fight heart diseases and high cholesterol together towards a heart healthy nation, NESTLÉ OMEGA PLUS pledges to donate RM100,000 to long-standing partners Yayasan Jantung Malaysia (YJM) and Institut Jantung Negara Foundation (IJNF) in support of heart patients in need upon the achievement of one million miles collectively for Walk A Million Miles 2022.
This year, Malaysians can participate in the Walk A Million Miles for FREE, from wherever they are, by signing up for the Walk A Million Miles 2022 challenge within the BookDoc app.
