Sikhs to begin goodwill walk from S'pore to Malacca on Saturday

KUALA LUMPUR: UNITED SIKHS MALAYSIA, a non-governmental organisation from the local Sikh community, plans to undertake a 300km goodwill walk from Singapore to Malacca beginning Saturday until May 24.

Rishi Singh Randhawa, a radio deejay better known as "The Flying Singh", will lead the walk starting at 5 am from the Silat Road Gudwara Sahib in Singapore. 
The goodwill walk also aims to raise awareness and funds for the Gurpuri Foundation. 
Gurpuri, which means "Place of the Guru", intends to build a Sikh temple, a school and a home for orphans, widows, single mothers, handicapped children and the elderly on a seven-hectare site in Bentong, Pahang. 
"We hope to raise a minimum of RM100 per km and we will walk for an estimated 10 hours a day for eight days," Rishi said. 
There will be stops along the way, including gurdwaras (Sikh temples) in Johor Baru, Batu Pahat and Muar.
