In a continuous effort to instil and drive Lifelong Wellness Culture, the National Department of Sport, Arts, and Culture will on Thursday, 18 November 2021 at 19h00 host #WomandlaInFitness, a zoom webinar session inspiring South Africans on how to move from #Good2Greatness. During this session, an exciting panel of experts will share with the South African audiences their insights on how to move from being focused on goals but rather to develop positive habits towards long life wellness healthy lifestyle.

This November, the campaign is amped up with another robust #Good2Greatness Twitter Space session to create an awareness on Men's Health issues. The session is taking place on Thursday, 25 November 2021 at 20h00. The discussions will be centred largely around Men’s Mental Health and other Non-Communicable Diseases affecting men. Key will also be discussions around developing mental health of men which ensures a society which empowers and encourages protection of women and children against GBVF.

The #WomandlaInFitness Webinar and Men's Health Awareness Twitter Space will be followed by the Ayihlome Ihlasele Street Bash Bootcamp on 04 December 2021 at 08:00 in Soweto. The Bootcamp event, which will take place in a hybrid format and streamed live on social media platforms, will feature 3 certified fitness instructors running a 90-minute workout session to 100 participants filled out on the street doing the exercises with an effort to combat obesity, and to discourage sedentary lifestyles.

Hosted under the #IChoose2BActive campaign, these 3 activations are among others aimed at promoting awareness about positive and healthy lifestyles to lower death rates and combat the epidemic of noncommunicable illnesses.

Launched in 2015 by the Department of Sport, Arts, and Culture the I Choose 2 B Active campaign is a 365-day call to action campaign designed to inspire all South Africans to pursue and commit to a life-long habit of being physically active regularly for a heathy body and mind.

The government, through the Department of Sport and Culture, encourages all South Africans from all walks of life to stand up and TAKE CHARGE of their lives and dare others to follow suit. After all a healthy society is a productive society.

I Choose 2 B Active…HOW ABOUT YOU.
