Calvary Baptist holds Health Walk


The Shiashie Branch of the Calvary Baptist Church on Saturday undertook a two-hour Health Walk and a free screening exercise to sensitize the community on the need for them to be serious with undertaking physical training exercises.

The Walk, led by the Pastor-In-Charge, the Reverend Emmanuel Annoh, started from the Church premises at Shiashie in Accra through East Legon to American House and back to the starting point.

About 1,000 members of the Church and the community took part in the walk, which was under the theme "Networking for Success".

Rev. Annoh who addressed the participants after the walk, called on them to take active interest in sports and physical exercises to enable them remain healthy at all times.

He said the Church had acquired a large tract of land to establish a social centre and university soon to complement government's effort of making education affordable.

Rev. Annoh expressed the hope that the Church would make the walk an annual affair and would also continue to go on outreach programmes to other communities.

Rev. Noah Acolatse, Chairman of the Organising Committee said the Ablekuma, Nungua, Teshie, Mandela and Aburi Missions of the Church would also organise similar exercises very soon.

He advised the youth to desist from indiscriminate sex, which he said was one of the sources of contracting HIV/AIDS.

Rev Acolatse advised the youth to offer daily prayers so that the Lord provides them with all their needs.
