Miri cathedral parish organises fundraising walkathon

Warming up before the walkathon, 9 Sept 2017, Miri.

MIRI – St Joseph’s  Cathedral Parish here organised a family walkathon on 9 Sept 2017 and raised more than RM700,000 for the new cathedral building fund.

About 800 participants took part in the walk and food fair.

At the prize giving for the highest 10 collectors, Bishop Richard Ng expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the organisers, sponsors, participants, and all those who contributed in cash or kind to make the walkathon a memorable event.

The bishop thanked in particular “The Ironlegs” – a local running club which provided advice, technical support, equipment and route management during the walkathon, including assistance from the Miri Cyclist Club. He hoped that the family walkathon can be an annual affair bringing families together for healthy exercise as well as raising fund for Wisma St Joseph.
