Jawans and officers of the 122 Infantry Battalion of the Territorial Army and ex-Servicemen joined a walkathon organised here by the battalion and the P.P.C. Walkers Club-Pappinissery on Sunday.
Battalion Commanding Officer B.S. Bali flagged off the programme in which scores of jawans, officers, ex-Servicemen, their family members, and volunteers participated.
The walkathon started from the historical Vilakkumthara spot near Prabhat Junction here at 6.30 a.m. and ended at the TA Battalion Ground.
Club president Admiral K. Mohanan presided. The event was organised as part of creating public awareness on the importance of morning walk in maintaining good health.
The organisers said a similar programme involving senior citizens in the district would be held on the Muzhappilangad beach soon.
