Pine­hill Walk at Fif­teen

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Or­ga­niz­ers of one of the big­gest fun walks here on the is­land are ex­pect­ing even greater par­tic­i­pa­tion for this year’s event. Dis­trib­u­tors of Pine­hill, Peter and Com­pany, launched the 2015 edi­tion of the Pine­hill Fun Walk on July 24 and since then the feed­back has been over­whelm­ing.

Over the past week or­ga­niz­ers have set up kiosks at the malls and su­per­mar­kets where per­sons can register and this, they say, has been go­ing very well. Now in its 15th year, the walk seeks to raise the con­scious­ness of Saint Lu­cians about healthy lifestyles and the im­por­tance of mov­ing away from the day-to-day task of sim­ply walk­ing.

Pine­hill Brand Man­ager, Shari Popo says that as a na­tion, Saint Lu­cia ap­pears to be plagued by sev­eral chronic and pro­gres­sive con­di­tions that can be pre­vented or man­aged through var­i­ous ac­tive and healthy life changes. “We there­fore chal­lenge our walk­ers to keep walk­ing through the year and not just dur­ing the week of Pine­hill Fun Walk,” she says.

This year’s Pine­hill Fun Walk will be held this Sun­day Au­gust 16 from 6:30 a.m. The walk be­gins near the Sab play­ing field at Vigie, up the John Comp­ton High­way to Gros Islet and ends at Pi­geon Is­land.

At the end point par­tic­i­pants will be treated to break­fast as well as a health and well­ness fair ahead of the prize-giv­ing cer­e­mony.

Ra­dio Caribbean In­ter­na­tional, DIG­I­CEL 4G, Par­adise Wa­ter, Vir­gin At­lantic, Flow, Sco­tia Bank, Seven Seas, Sub­way, Travel and Leisure Cen­tre, Ex­cel Signs and Land­mark Events are part­ners in this year’s Pine­hill Fun Walk.
