The Chairman of the Federation of Universities Senior Staff Association of Ghana(FUSSAG) Local Chapter of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Mr. Daniel Egyir, has announced plans to introduce monthly health walk for members of the Association to keep them healthy.
He said exercise helps in the reduction of certain medical conditions which mostly affect members due to the nature of their work such as back ache, joint pains, among others.
Mr. Egyir made the announcement when members of FUSSAG- UCC embarked on a 4 km health walk on campus. The walk, which started from the Casely-Hayford Field through some principal streets of the University and ended at the New Cape Coast Stadium, was on the theme " Walk for Health, Health is Wealth".
He urged members to embrace exercise to stay fit and healthy. The Chairman said when members patronise the health walks, they would be healthier and be more productive at work. Participants of the health walk were taken through some aerobics by the instructors of the New Cape Coast Sports Stadium Physiotherapy Centre.
The well-attended event was accompanied by a brass band.
