Some 5,000 Ang Mo Kio and Sengkang West residents walked about 2km from Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West to the ITE College Central yesterday as part of a nationwide mass walk that attracted 75,000 participants.
The walk was flagged off by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Called "Walk with a Heart", the national event was organised by the People's Association to show that residents care for the less privileged. The event comprised a series of walks of 2km to 3km held through the day.
