to AFM Real Power: The Clog Walk 2023
AFM Real Power: The Clog Walk 2023 is an exciting fundraising project aimed at raising funds for arthritis patients under Arthritis Foundation Malaysia (AFM). The fundraiser aims to bring together individuals and organizations to participate in The Clog Walk, where participants will attempt to complete a 800 meters walk in clogs. They will walk alongside the arthritis warriors in this journey and experience the struggles and challenges faced by them just by going about doing their day to day activities.
Significantly, we as a community, have the real power to make a remarkable impact on the lives of arthritis patients, providing them with the necessary resources and support they need. Together, we can make The Clog Walk 2023 and empower those affected by arthritis to lead healthier and happier lives.
AFM Real Power 2023: Walk With Clogs
A fun fundraiser initiative involving participants walking in clogs with the objective of encouraging an active lifestyle for arthritis patients and increasing awareness on arthritis.
About five in 1000 Malaysians aged between 18 to 34 is affected by rheumatoid arthritis. As arthritis is a chronic degenerative condition that can cost from RM30,000 to RM50,000 a year for effective medication and treatment, most patients are forced to live in constant pain due to the inability to sustain its cost.
To date, the Arthritis Foundation Malaysia (AFM) has been able to extend treatment funding support applied by a few arthritis patients for a period of 3-6 months. However, to sustainably provide this funding programme for more patients, continuous fundraising efforts need to be in place, hence the launching of AFM Real Power: The Clog Walk 2023 with an intention of subsequently hosting it annually.
Through this debut event, AFM Real Power: The Clog Walk 2023 aims to raise RM100,000 for the Arthritis Treatment Fund that is meant to assist patients who cannot afford treatment.
Supported by our Patron, Toh Puan Dato’ Seri Hjh Dr Aishah Ong, AFM Real Power: The Clog Walk 2023 is designed for arthritis patients and caregivers, and will also be opened to the general public to participate. Besides being a family fun event for all walks of life, it will also feature a host of exciting and engaging community circle activities that the whole family can enjoy.
