Spread the love

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th there will be sports, physical activities and medical tests aimed at promoting healthy living habits.

On 28th and 29th September the town council of Xaló has organised a weekend for the heart and movement in collaboration with the Cycling Club, the Mountain Club and the Athletics Club, with participation from Xaló pharmacy and the festeros of Santo Doménec 2020.

The aim of this weekend, which will be filled with sports and physical activities, is to “promote healthy living habits among the population” according to the councillor for health Lara Avellà.

On Saturday the activities will begin at 10 am with an exhibition from the school of ‘Pelota’ that will allow children to participate. Then there will be a healthy mid-morning snack for all participants. At 12 pm we will enjoy a story telling show for children and after lunch, at 4.30pm, the Cycling Club has organized a bicycle tour around the village. Then, at 6pm, it will be the turn for those who want to learn how to climb on the climbing wall thanks to Xaló Mountain Club. The day will end with a public dinner in the street where people bring their own food and tables.

Meanwhile, on Sunday the 29th the day will start with a ‘cholesterol’ walk for all ages, organized by the Athletics Club. At 10: 30am we will recover our strength with a healthy mid-morning snack. Then there will be one of the most fun activities of the weekend. This is a gymkhana for couples, for which you must register (information on the attached poster) and then another gymkhana for all ages.

Cholesterol Control

As one of the objectives of this weekend is “to make people realise what is essential to having good health,” as said by the councillor, at 11:30am cholesterol tests will be provided (as well as blood pressure, blood sugar and triglycerides tests).

To finish the weekend of the heart and movement, at 2pm there will be a public paella organized by the festeros of Santo Doménec 2020 and then, at 3pm, a dance with ‘La Gran Babylon’ to conclude the day.
