As a avid walker, he participates in the Walk/Run For Life programme in Sandringham, and aims to walk at least 24km per week.
“There’s a group of us who walk together along six different routes. It’s such a calming activity to do with your friends.
“I think that walking is such an amazing thing to do. Besides being healthy, it is nice to be out in the neighbourhood and socialising. I recommend it to everyone.”
