The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Big Play­ers Football Club has or­ga­nized a health and fit­ness walk which is sched­uled to take place on Sun­day 28th Septem­ber, 2015. The pur­pose of the walk is to en­cour­age peo­ple to get in­volved in ex­er­cise as a means of main­tain­ing healthy bod­ies and alert minds and to build unity among the youth and gen­eral com­mu­nity. The theme for the walk is “Build­ing to­geth­er­ness through sports, fit­ness and health”.

The Marc­hand Com­mu­nity pos­sesses no­table tal­ents in football and sports and is the home of the Min­doo Phillip Park which has been uti­lized for shap­ing and build­ing sev­eral sport­ing pro­fes­sion­als around St. Lu­cia. The club is of the opin­ion that this walk will dis­play com­mu­nity spirit and fo­cus on some of the pos­i­tive at­tributes which ex­ist.

The walk is sched­uled to com­mence at 6:30 am at the Marc­hand grounds, and will pro­ceed down Marc­hand Road onto Chaussee Road then up Les­lie Land and through Wa­ter Works to Bocage through Ti Rocher, to Old Vic­to­ria Road, down through Rock Hall and back to the Marc­hand grounds. The walk will cul­mi­nate with health talks, tests for di­a­betes and hy­per­ten­sion and var­i­ous recre­ational sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Marc­hand branch of The Royal St. Lu­cia Po­lice Force and the Dis­trict Rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Hon­or­able Phillip J. Pierre have en­dorsed this ac­tiv­ity and are work­ing with the club to en­sure the event is a suc­cess.

The Big Play­ers Football Club is cur­rently hold­ing dis­cus­sions with some sec­tions of the pri­vate and public sec­tor who have in­di­cated their in­ter­est in pro­vid­ing sup­port for and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event.

Big Play­ers Football Club is a youth sports and com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tion based in the Marc­hand Com­mu­nity. The club is one of the most prom­i­nent and suc­cess­ful football clubs in St. Lu­cia and is the cur­rent SLFA Pre­miere League de­fend­ing cham­pion.

All fit­ness en­thu­si­asts, sports­men and sportswomen, sport­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions and the gen­eral public are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate.
