Dubbed “THE HUNT”, the walk was aimed at encouraging corporate groups to burn calories the fun way.


Mr Clarence Amoatey, General Manager of TPMC, said the walk also sought to draw awareness to kidney-related diseases and the need to keep one’s kidney healthy.

“Walking is one of the easiest ways for the busy working class to improve one’s health,” he said, adding “There is usually a lot of focus on cardiovascular diseases but other vital organs, like the kidney, tend to be lost in the thrill.

Some of the participants described ‘The Hunt’ as exciting but challenging.

“The hardest part was climbing up the hill,” said Mr George Nipa, one of the participants.

He added that “but the fact that we were walking in groups and chatting along the route made it fun. We barely noticed we had walked 13.2km!”

The walk was complemented with aerobics and a health talk on how to prevent kidney diseases. Participants also interacted with kidney patients who shared their experience.

Prizes were awarded to about 14 participants who completed the walk in record time. These included a weekend stay in Labadi Beach Hotel, a full body massage at Allure Spa, lunch at Amzera Restaurant and grooming at Men’s Cabin.
