Thousands of residents in Sunyani and surrounding towns, corporate staff and fan club members joined Ark FM staff for the 2nd edition of Ark FM’s Health Walk on Saturday, December 1.
Patrons who were all donning Ark Fm branded T.Shirts walked through the principal streets of Sunyani while Professional gym instructors took patrons through some aerobics.
A team of doctors and other health workers were also around to conduct free health screening on various diseases.
The 2018 Ark Fm Health Walk which is part of the station’s cooperate social responsibility, started at 6.00 am from the forecourt of the J Adom Building opposite N.I.B and ended at the Jubilee Park in Sunyani.
The event is seen as the biggest ever to be held in Sunyani.
Managing Director of Ark FM, Mr. Godwin Atta Andoh Snr, alias ‘Atta Promzy’ told markfmonline.com that the event aimed at keeping Ark fm’s listeners fit and healthy and strengthening the bond with everyday people and corporate bodies who listen to Ark FM in the Brong Ahafo region and beyond.
