Labi residents sweat it out in Health Run

Daniel Lim

Dozens of residents from the rural area in Kampong Labi gathered at Mukim Labi Mosque for a Health Run yesterday.

The run – organised by the Kampong Labi I Village Consultative Council (MPK) and Mukim Labi Mosque Takmir Committee in conjunction with the early new Islamic year of 1441 Hijrah – sought to encourage residents to participate in activities conducted by the mosque, and at the same time, instil a healthy lifestyle mindset.

Legislative Council member and Kampong Labi I Village Head I Yang Berhormat Hanapi bin Mohd Siput was the guest of honour.

Prior to the run, a Sunnat Qobliyah Subuh prayer, mass Subuh prayer and a Tazkirah were held.

Participants were briefed on safety aspects and the route they would be taking – across the surrounding areas of Kampong Labi. After an aerobic session, Yang Berhormat Hanapi flaged off the run.

The organisers hope to hold similar events in the future.
