"People mountain people sea" around the area. So we start the run around 9am after doing some body warm up exercise. Honestly is hard for us to make a run, most of the people in 'jogging' at the beginning point, I only do a speed up after a walk about 500m.
The short route is 3.2km for children, you can take challenge for 6km as a tribute to their loved ones (whose lives was claimed prematurely by cancer).
So i totally took about 40 min for the 6km run ( Because in the begining , i am jogging, not running).
There is an email that send by the Terry Fox Run KL Committees about cancer.
I would like to share this nice piece of article by Dr Albert Lim (source: www.malaysiaoncology.org):
We don’t know what causes cancer
- We do
- Accumulated genetic mistakes
-Disease of ageing
- Chemicals, radiation, viruses
Can we prevent cancer?
- Stop smoking
- Maintain ideal/ less than ideal body weight
- Vaccinate against Hepatitis B
- Secondary prevention
– mammography, pap smear, faecal occult blood test, PSA
Does smoking cause cancer?
Is cancer largely a lifestyle disease?
Is cancer inherited?
- Only 10% are inherited
- Remember, you inherit the risk, not the cancer
Remember too, cancer do not discriminate! If good fortune permits, I will be updating you again in Terry Fox Run 2008! So till then!
I will going the run for next year again. And encourage your friend stop smoking to prevent cancer looking for you. :D
