‘Let’s Move Malta’ launched in a bid to promote physical activity

Let’s Move Malta – a week of sporting activity for everyone – was launched on Monday by Dr Lydia Abela in collaboration with the Minister of Sport and Education as well as SportMalta CEO Mark Cutajar.

This five-day event, which gets under way on Monday and comes to a close on Friday, will consist of several sporting activities held at the Kirkop Sports Complex, St Vincent De Paul residential home, the Marsa Sports Complex, San Blas, and the Cottonera Sports Complex.

The activity is open to people from all walks of life and Dr Abela, who is the president of Special Olympics Malta, said that this event is being organised to bring everyone together.

“The beauty of sport is that it brings together a lot of people, Dr Abela said in the presence of Mark Cutajar, the chief executive of Sport Malta with whom this event is being organised.

‘Let’s Move Malta’ starts on Monday with a sporting event held by Special Olympics Malta.

Dr Abela said that this initiative is being held towards a healthier society and should also lead to more people being involved in physical activities.

Sports Minister Clifton Grima spoke about the huge investment on sports infrastructure over the years and these facilities are not only being used by athletes and sportsmen but also by the public in general.

“We are providing sporting facilities of the highest level around our country and we are also making sure that all schools are well-equipped while also emphasising the importance of sport and physical activity from a young age,” Dr Grima said.

On his part, Mark Cutajar spoke about how one should take the opportunities that arise from such initiatives so that one will be able to conduct physical activity at either his workplace or where one spends most of his time on the day.

He emphasised that during this initiative we need to show everyone that one can conduct physical activity, irrespective of his age.
