National Steps Challenge The New Paper Big Walk 2017
|Start Date||November 26, 2017|
|End Date||November 26, 2017|
|Venue||Singapore Sports Hub|
TNP Big Walk Returns to National Stadium after more than a decade. Adding to the excitement, the Big Walk will partner the National Steps Challenge for a fun-filled morning on Nov 26. The Walk will start from the Singapore Sports Hub at 7am.
The tie-up of the Big Walk with the National Steps Challenge resonates with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s National Day Rally speech on Aug 20.
Mr Lee had urged Singaporeans to lead a healthy lifestyle and beat diabetes, especially to “eat right, exercise more, get your health checked regularly and think twice about picking up that can of soft drink”.
He added that people should ideally get at least 150 minutes of physical activity a week, and walking at least 10,000 steps a day can be an alternative goal.
