Giordano, in partnership with various community organizations, invites the public to the ‘Walk For Your Health’ event on 26th March at Safa Park, Dubai. The large-scale walk is being hosted to raise awareness on the importance of exercise to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Participants will have their blood pressure taken by Filipino Healthcare providers (FHCP) prior to their 3.4km walk on the jogging track. After the walk, there will be a dance exercise and health lecture at the Safa park amphitheatre highlighting the risk factors caused by lack of exercise.

Commenting on the event, Ishwar Chugani, Executive Director Giordano Fashions L.L.C, said “It is our pleasure and honor to support the 4th edition of ‘Walk For Your Health’ as we believe that it is integral for the community to be educated on the health hazards brought about by the lack of exercise in day to day living. We call on the community to join us at Safa Park and kick-start their way into a healthy lifestyle”.

The chair of the event is the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) and the activities of the day will be supported and organized by Giordano, Scout Royale Brotherhood (SRB), Filipino Association for Computer Excellence (FACE) and Filipino Healthcare providers (FHCP).

“The event is a reminder that regular exercise and healthy living are essential to having a productive life especially for overseas-based professionals and workers who are always under stress being away from their loved ones,” said Choy Reyes from Alpha Phi Omega (APO).

Participants need to register at Gate 2 of Safa Park before 7AM, first 500 of which will get complimentary entry to the park, receive a free t-shirt from Giordano and discount vouchers at Barrio Fiesta restaurant.

The event will also be supported by various Filipino Community organizations belonging to the group duly-recognized by the Philippine consulate General.
