Chief Executive Officer of the NHF Mr. Everton Anderson speaking at the award ceremony said, “Over the last ten years, this competition, without a doubt has contributed significantly to lifestyle changes in the population. Started out targeting only 50 participants, the competition has grown bigger and better each year reaching persons in communities, churches, workplaces and among families.”
“More and more persons are becoming engaged in healthier lifestyles and we are proud to lead this initiative and to be playing the role as a strong partner in the lives of ordinary Jamaicans, helping to make them healthier.” he added.
The Work-It-Out Challenge, which features exercise sessions, boot camps, dance-off sessions and proper nutrition encourages lifestyle changes in order to achieve a healthier mind and body.
