As part of its commitment to promoting healthy living among staff, listeners and the general public, Ghana’s number one urban radio station YFM will embark on a health walk in Takoradi.
The eight-kilometre (8km) walk dubbed ‘ Y Walk it Out’ is a quarterly health walk organised by YFM Takoradi to ensure healthy living among the inhabitants of the Sekondi-Takorad Metropolis.
The second edition of the walk is slated for Saturday, November, 30 2019.
‘Y Walk it Out’ will start at 6am from the Vodafone main office amidst brass band and ‘Jama’ through ‘Agip’, ‘Pipe Ano’, ‘St Francis’ and end at ‘Anaji choice Mart’ for a 30-minute aerobics session.
Speaking ahead of the ‘Y Walk it out’, Programmes Manager of YFM Takoradi Mr. Agyekum Gyima Akwasi said, “Walking has a lot of benefits like increased heart and lung fitness, reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, improves management of conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, joint and muscular pain or stiffness, and diabetes.”
”It also ensures stronger bones and improved balance, increased muscle strength and endurance. And ultimately reduced body fat, that is why I am encouraging our listeners in the Western Region to come and join us walk to enjoy these benefits” he added.
He commended Sadak Car Rentals (SDC), Miksi and Anaji Choice Mart for sponsoring the ‘Y Walk it Out’
”We came up with a concept to help promote health among our listeners and we cannot achieve success until likeminded brands come onboard. That is why I would like to express my gratitude to Sadak Car Rentals (SDC), Miksi and Anaji Choice Mart for supporting us. We use this platform to encourage other entities to come and support this worthy cause” he stated.
The first edition which was an instant hit, brought together over one thousand (1000) participants from Keep fit clubs, students and corporate institutions in the Western Region.
