Organised by the Singapore Heart Foundation, the family-friendly Woof-a-thon is a chance for dog-lovers to get together and promotes the cardiovascular benefits of walking your dog.

Studies have shown that pet ownership, in particular dogs, help to reduce the risk of heart diseases, as dog owners are more likely to engage in walking and physical activities.

Dog owners can register to walk with other dog-loving individuals and their furry friends on a “Buddy Walk”.

Even those who don’t have dogs can join in the walk – all for a healthier heart.
