Akshay Kumar Walks for Health

Monday, February 05, 2018

Yesterday (Sunday – 4th Feb 2018) was World Cancer Awareness Day and filmstar Akshay Kumar flagged off a morning walkathon from the SNDT University’s Juhu campus to Juhu beach. What was novel about the event was that it formally introduced the concept of Power Walking for health to local citizens with a 7-km power walk race to the beach. What is power walking, you ask? It’s walking as fast as one can, but with one foot always in contact with the ground, so that one is not running. For the benefit of the huge crowd gathered, Kumar demonstrated the skill on a treadmill-like machine that also generated electricity from the energy released by him! Of course, participants in the race, on their part, power walked without the machine on the concrete and sandy surfaces they had to tread over. Judging from the enthusiastic crowd reaction, and with a super-fit Akshay doing the running, there will always be the much-needed life force (and power) in the vicinity.
