Aligned to the objective of promoting healthy lifestyles among the HCT-Ras Al Khaimah (RKM) community, the campus’s Student Life Department initiated a near week-long series of health-related activities from April 29 to May 2, 2018.
Under the system-wide theme of “A Healthy Life is a Wealthy Life”; the initiative started with a “Rethink Your Drink” Awareness campaign, followed by the participation of other health-related organizations, such as the Euro Optic Eye Check and RAK Hospital Mobile Eye Clinic. In addition, Toro Verde, Jebel Jais Flight, Ice Land Water Park, and Al Jazeera Diving and Swimming Center presented their fun and interactive programs of activities, while Spinneys and Baguette’s “ Bike your Own Smoothie” attracted students, faculty and staff for its unique concept.
Several fun games were also conducted on the third day, such as table tennis, PS4 FIFA, billiards, ‘baby foot’ and the Plank Challenge; with the winners presented with medals and sports apparel.
The Health and Fitness week culminated with a Walking Activity around the campus, strongly patronized by students, faculty and staff keen to get active in a relaxed and fun environment.
