The gift that keeps on giving…Be an Organ Donor

For many of us, with not enough funds to buy exercise equipments and maintain a gym in our houses, Lake Morgan has become somewhat of our exercise spot. Apart from the scenic beauty of the lake and its well kept surroundings, it provides a 3.5km walk trail that is so easy for the young and old to use at most part of the day. If you are into running, skating, cycling, jogging or walking, this trail is amenable to whatever you bring its way. Whatever you do, you will not be alone and will find company in both old and young doing the same around the lake.

My wife and I have come to find this walking trail our shared opportunity to temporarily leave life’s challenges behind and enjoy the company of each other while catching some much needed exercise through walking. You will most likely find us on the trail doing the long stride walking or jogging and chatting at the same time. Read More...
