Sports Division Health Walk

In an effort to control the recent increase of non-communicable diseases in Dominica the sports division held their second health walk that commenced at layou junction.

Sports officer Mr. Godwin Dorsette says in comparison to the 1st Health walk the turn-out was much greater however, he believes most people did not show up due the weather.

 

Mr. Dorsette believes keeping healthy is vital and we can do so by just taking a 30 minute walk everyday. In addition he stated that walking is a gentle, low-impact exercise that can ease any one into a higher level of fitness while combating many illnesses.

 

The sports division encourages Dominicans of all ages to practice healthy lifestyles and invites members of the public to participate.

 

Sports officer of the Western District Mr. Edmond Audain says the division will carry on hosting a walk every month for the year 2012 as it seeks to pursue its mandate to enhance the quality of life.

 

The next Health Walk will commence at Sailsbury where the public is expected to power-walk to Portsmouth.

 

The Sports Division organized a PA system which played music and gave out health tips to encourage participation of members of the various communities that it passes through.
