Let’s Move For a Better World Award Ceremony – Australia 2014
On Tuesday 26th of August, St Helena Secondary College in Eltham, Victoria, hosted the Award Ceremony of the 2014 Let’s Move For a Better World Campaign. Over 1,500 students at St Helena will now embrace a more active lifestyle as the school was the lucky recipient of a state-of-the-art gym kit offered by Technogym and WaterMarc Aquatic Centre, Greensborough.
Technogym and WaterMarc – ranked 1st in the Australian challenge of the global charity initiative to raise awareness for childhood obesity – donated Technogym’s Easy Line equipment along with educational seminars and training sessions to the school worth a total value of $50,000.
During the Award Ceremony, Technogym Australia, WaterMarc and Belgravia Leisure presented the equipment together with 100 students, a delegation of teachers, principal Karen Terry and Eltham’s local community and press. After a seminar on the importance of adopting an active lifestyle, led by Darren Hancock, Health Club Manager at WaterMarc, 10 students and a physical instructor enjoyed a 15-minute training session on the brand new Easy Line equipment.
The Let’s Move for a Better World Challenge was made possible thanks to the mywellness cloud platform. It is a worldwide interactive competition created by Technogym that calls upon fitness and leisure facilities to join in and put their members’ training to good use. During this year’s 4-week contest a total of 20,000 people in some 200 fitness centres in 10 countries collected over 100 Million MOVEs – Technogym’s movement unit of measure.
“The Let’s Move for a Better World Campaign is the result of Technogym’s thirty-year long commitment to improving Wellness around the world. The campaign is helping to build a more sustainable society and educational platform for the younger generation on the importance of health and wellness” – Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym.
