Prime Minister applauds moms and daughters for zumba participation

POSTED: 09/26/12 12:17 PM

St. Maarten – Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams has applauded the large number of mothers and daughters that have attended the weekly zumba sessions that are held in front of the Government Administration Building each Friday. “It is encouraging to see the number of mothers and daughters that join in every week. It shows not only the bond that mothers have with their daughters and vice versa, but it also shows that women in our community take their health and fitness seriously,” the prime minister said in a statement issued last night.

Some two hundred and fifty civil servants joined in the Soualiga Walk event and the fitness campaign some weeks ago and the activities continued with the free zumba classes in front of the Government Administration Center in Philipsburg.
The PM said that although the program is geared towards civil servants she encourages the wider community to come out and take part.

The prime minister said previously that the events are a part of a larger fitness campaign where she encourages civil servants and the community in general to take their health and fitness seriously. “There is much we can do for ourselves as individuals and as a country as far as good health is concerned. Information, diet and exercise are the basic ABC’s to good health and are valuable in any situation. I want to encourage our health institutions, practitioners and NGO’s in this field to focus on educating our community on aspects of health and I call on all, especially our women, to take responsibility for their health, regular check-ups, and to heed warning signs such as aches and pains.”
