While #Red2Green participants marched forward to spread awareness on the danger of bauxite mining, the medic ensure that everyone is fit to join the walk and gives them first aid and medical support along the way throughout their 313km walk from Kuantan to the Parliament.

Heroes are not defined by popularity and glamour but they are defined by what they do for the society without taking credits for what they did and continuosly do so without expecting anything as a reward, and the Guardians of The Streets are definitely your everyday superheroes.
