Integrity Magazine/Krif Media Limited in collaboration with Marriot hotel, Healthnet Airport Medical Centre and C & J Hospital, organised its premier health walk dubbed “Get a second opinion”.

The walk, which drew participants from residents and officers within the Airport Residential Area, sought to improve upon the fitness and health of the participants and also served as a great opportunity for families and residents to meet, interact and network.

The 6.65 kilometre walk commenced from the Marriott hotel, Airport City, all through to Lands Commission, Gold House, the Jack and Jill school, Liebherr Junction, Airport View Hotel, Airport Roundabout and ended at the Marriot Hotel in approximately two hours.

Participants were taken through an aerobic session after which a team of medical personnel from Healthnet Airport Medical Centre and C & J Hospital screened and advised participants on health related issues.

The screening included blood pressure, body mass index, testing blood sugar and Hepatitis B among others.

Rev Kennedy Okosun, Editor-In-Chief of Integrity Magazine said, it would organise monthly health walks in various residential areas, not only to create awareness about the magazine, but also to ensure that its target audience benefits from events slated to ensure their wellness.

“We therefore encourage the general public to participate in health walks such as this as it seeks to enhance our fitness and health needs,” he said.

Grace Acheampong, Director of Human Resources Marriott hotel said her outfit were proud to partner the organisers in the walk because the purpose of the walk was in line with their community project dubbed “community 360 project.”

She said institutions must encourage healthy lifestyle among their staffs to ensure high productivity at work.
