IT WAS a morning filled with active fun for members of the Youth Development Centre (YDC) yesterday as it held a bicycle-thon and walkathon at Jalan Utama Tanah Jambu area in Berakas.

Held in conjunction with the eighth “Entrepreneurs Week” as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle, the simultaneous events were also participated by a number of residents from Kg Belimbing.

The events kicked off with a warm up aerobic session led by the instructors from Fitness Zone at the YDC.

By 7.30am, 50 participants for the 2km bicycle-thon departed the centre for the ride along the Salambigar road. Meanwhile, 60 participants, including the guest of honour of the event, Yang Berhormat Hj Gapor @ Hj Mohd Daud Karim, Belimbing village head and LegCo representative for Zone 2, Brunei-Muara District, departed the centre for the 2.5km walk to and fro the residential area at Tanah Jambu.

Also joining in the fun while taking care of the participants’ safety by escorting them were the police as well as volunteers from the Challenge, Adventure, Recreation and Educate (CARE) Association.

The event ended with a handover of a souvenir to the village head by the Acting Assistant Director of the YDC, Haswandi Osman, as a token of appreciation.
