Corporate Kumasi walk to stay healthy

Hundreds of personnel from corporate establishments in Kumasi turned up to partake in the second edition of the ‘Fitness Challenge’ organized by Luv Fm.

The health walk is part of the Station’s health package to support the physical and mental well-being of staff from participating institutions.

Gym instructors had gone on-air to give tips for a healthy lifestyle, prior to the event. The intent, according to the organizers, is to offer a platform for staff of corporate institutions to exercise, socialize and network for enhanced business productivity.
Kumasi Mayor, Samuel Sarpong joined staff of institutions and other individuals to walk from the Tech Junction to Denyame, under a competitive environment.

Some people joined the walk along the way, whist others fell out of the way. But most people eventually made it to the Miklin Hotel to join in the aerobics.

The City Major emphasized the need for corporate Kumasi to care a great deal about the health of the workforce. Mr. Sarpong said “it is very important because when you work, the possibility of being stressful is there. And when you exercise, it abstains you from all these and for that matter all corporate bodies and workers should take interest in undertaking such exercises”.

SIC Insurance Company recorded the highest turn out and Kumasi Area Manager, Lydia Babawa was elated at the opportunity to stay fit as well as meet social and business partners.

Side attractions included antics from the Tae Kwan Do group and free medical screening.

Citilink Air Transport won the ultimate prize of Five thousand Ghana Cedis worth of airtime from Luv Fm. SIC came second whilst UniBank was third.
