Caribbean Wellness day is a day established by CAPPHA and celebrated throughout the entire Caribbean to bring awareness to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) – what they are, the risk factors associated with such and what we can do as a nation to prevent or lower the number of cases of Non Communicable Diseases. The day is celebrated every year on the second Saturday in September. This year it will be celebrated on September 12th.
As we have noticed that many people in our federation as well as across the Caribbean are not physically active enough, we at the Health Promotion Unit in Nevis have decided to use Caribbean Wellness Day to promote the start or continuation of a healthy lifestyle by encouraging our citizens to walk more.
Therefore on Saturday September 12th 2015, we will be having our annual Caribbean Wellness Day walk which will start at 6am from the Villa grounds through town and end back on the villa via town, the bypass road and Pump Road. Maysfield Nisbett will be there to give warm up and warm down exercises both before and after the walk respectively.
Please see attached flyer for the event!!
SEE YOU THERE!!!!
