partnership with the National Sports Council to be held at the Accra Sports
Stadium on Saturday July 27, 2013.
The event which will draw various

the advantages in visiting gyms to shape their bodies” he hinted.
Chief Larry, a specialist in events

institutions must also encourage their staff to attach seriousness to
exercising to maintain their sound minds in sound bodies.

the laudable initiative that comes off every month.

not been approached to come on board to make Ghanaians healthier and stronger.
