Malay Mail Big Walk Postponed Due To Haze
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10 (Bernama) -- The Malay Mail Big Walk scheduled for Saturday and Sunday has been postponed indefinitely due to the haze.
According to a statement from the Malay Mail Wednesday, the event which was scheduled to be held at Dataran Merdeka was called off as the corner stone of the walk was to promote the spirit of togetherness and healthy living.
"With the haze at this level, we are not willing to put public health in jeopardy especially the large number of school children involved," said the statement sent to Bernama.
However, the organisers reiterated their commitment to organise the event on a later date which will be announced soon.
