The Blindfolded Marathon

Tim Lok Chen Haw, 19, ran the Allianz Penang Bridge International Marathon with his eyes blindfolded!

Lok is not blind — he covered his eyes with cloth to highlight glaucoma, an eye disorder of the optic nerve which is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide.

He was raising money for his Raleigh expedition in Borneo in 2012 and the Malaysia Glaucoma Society.



With the help of a few 'guides' to ensure he stayed on route, he completed the marathon in a fantastic five hours and 40 minutes.

So far Lok has raised RM3,000 with the aim of reaching RM20,000 through his inspiring marathon.
