Details of Walk of HOPE

Walk of HOPE.
RUN because you CAN, WALK because you CARE!

We have 3 categories for this event!

A - Adult Open (Men/Women) 18 years old AND above  7km   minimum donation of RM 60
B - Youth Open (Boy/Girl) Below 18 years old  7km  minimum donation of RM 50
C - Amputee Walk Along                 Open to all ages   2km minimum donation of RM 30
D - Corporate Team                        Group of 10             7km  minimum donation of RM 1000

Why Amputee Walk Along?
If you feel that you are unfit to run, you can always opt to join the amputee walk along. This is where our amputees and also (encouraging) all amputees in the Klang Valley to walk. Most amputees can only walk at an average of 100-200 metres. So this will be a competition of passing the baton among the amputees in groups. We will walk along with them, cheer for them and encourage them to not give up within this 2km route! It is definitely not easy for them, so it would be great and meaningful if we show them that we are there for them. Moreover if they try and not give up, they will inspire other amputees to do the same. If they can walk, they will have a better life. This is the highlight and the most meaningful event of the day.

What you will get?
Each runner will receive a T-shirt and number bib (to be collected before 15 June 2014), goody bag, certificate of participation and banana. There will also be refreshments after the run.

*For category C, you will receive T-shirt and goody bag. You will also get a balloon to be hold when walking along with the amputees.

What is Limbs for Life? What is Walk of Hope?

Limbs For Life is a welfare project of Bandar Utama Buddhist Society (BUBS) that offers FREE prosthetic limbs to Malaysian amputees from poor or underprivileged background, regardless of race and religion. 


Walk of HOPE is a community event which is organized by BUDDY (Bandar Utama Dhamma Duta Youth) to support Limbs For Life.  

There will be a 7km run and a 2km amputee walk along. We hope that by coming together to run and to walk side-by-side with the amputees, we are able to inspire other amputees to see that living a normal and meaningful life is achievable despite their disability. 

We believe that many amputees are able-bodied and mentally sound people whose lives have taken a turn for the worse due to unfortunate circumstances and we would like to show our support and offer a gift of hope, independence and self dignity through Limbs For Life. 

Walk of hope is our way of showing support, giving encouragement and raising funds for them. Also, with prosthetic limbs, these amputees can go on to live a full, independent and productive life. We believe that each and everyone in the community has a part to play and when each member of the community is able to realise its full potential, ultimately the society and country will benefit.

Life is precious and you are here to lend a hand to offer amputees an opportunity for a second chance at life. :)
