15 YEARS NESTLE OMEGA PLUS WALK-A-MILE, WALK TO A HEALTHIER HEART

NESTLE OMEGA PLUS
WALK-A-MILE
ARRIVAL OF PARTICIPANTS AS EARLY AS 6AM
I am not a milk person. Seriously not one. But I was seeing my friends promoting NESTLE OMEGA PLUS with a very vibrant red colour, that caught my eyes...hahaha ok I love vibrant colours, but red actually makes one very active and that was the curiosity trigger. NESTLE is not a brand that is not known. They have been with us since 1866, providing household around the World with lots of choices from dairy product to food product. NESTLE has always been family affair. There is always something for anyone in the family. And what best to appreciate and educate their consumers on importance of healthy living and food intake by organising NESTLE OMEGA PLUS WALK-A-MILE. 

15TH NESTLE OMEGA PLUS WALK-A-MILE
It has now been 15 years that NESTLE OMEGA PLUS has organised the annual WALK-A-MILE (WAM) event, in collaboration with Yayasan Jantung Malaysia (YJM), and it is the longest-running event for heart health advocacy in the country. 

15 minutes of brisk walking reduces the risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Your own heart is in your own hands. Heart disease is not something that happens overnight but it builds up through years of living with risk factors, quoted Mr Chew Soi Ping, Executive Director, Sales, NESTLE (MALAYSIA) BERHAD. 

With an increase numbers of participants these year of about 3,800 people, and them sharing these moment and information through their social media with friends and family, they have actually 'saved' and educate others by spreading the word and news. With the increase numbers of high cholesterol at 47.7% in Malaysian adults as young as 18 years and above, is quite alarming. Ignoring will be denying that it is happening. 

Lack of regular exercise, unhealthy eating habits and other risk factors like smoking, which can be avoided, especially when we see Malaysians succumbing at a young age to heart disease, mentioned Tun Ahmad Sarji bin Abdul Hamid, President of Yayasan Jantung Malaysia.
