KUWAIT: Kuwait Special Olympics and Tumooh Sports Club launched a health awareness sports program themed “Your Health is in your Step” during the holy month of Ramadan, with the participation of 86 members of both genders representing three groups – boys, girls and their parents. The program’s aim is to count the total number of steps the participant takes, by wearing a special bracelet. Muscle and fat mass, weight and height of each participant are also taken before the start of the program. Valuable prizes will be given to the top three winners.

Head of the Special Olympics Hanaa Al-Zawawi said she was happy with the turnout by players and their parents to participate in the second edition of the program, which aims at encouraging participants to walk and exercise, as they have a positive effect on the body, as well as physical and mental fitness, while emphasizing the importance of healthy nutrition.

Zawawi said the club will also organize a Ramadan bowling championship in Salmiya. She appreciated the efforts of Chairwoman Rehab Buresli and her keenness to provide all that is necessary to ensure the activities’ success.
