The Parish Sports Ministry of St. Dominic Catholic Church in Yaba Lagos Nigeria, are set to take off in the 3rd edition of Rev. Bro Stephen Lucas “Walking Competition” which is expected to hold on Saturday June 3rd, 2017.
The Chairman of the Parish Sports Ministry Mrs Nonye Nwagbo who spoke exclusively with Sport Intelligence confirmed this during the Societies fair organized for societies in the parish on Sunday May 21.
Nwagbo who has knack for quality Sport programme confirmed that parishioners and Nigerians generally undermine the importance of walking to the health, and there was a need for the Sports Ministry to put such programme in place so as to enable them reap from the health benefits of the neglected exercise.
Mrs Nwagbo further explained that the exercise would begin by 9am, and participants will be expected to walk from St. Dominic Catholic Church to the Senate building of the University of Lagos, after which they will return to the parish in the same convoy.
The dynamic Sport-loving lady was also quick to call for support and sponsorship on the forthcoming event from corporate individuals and bodies,appealing that it would go a long way in further making the programme a huge success.
The need for individuals to be actively involved in physical exercise gets its Biblical injunction from 1 Timothy 4:8.
