KOTA KINABALU: Aerobics and fitness enthusiasts such as zumba are invited to attend a 2-hour non-stop fitness dance at the Indoor Stadium (Badminton Hall) of the Likas Sports Complex.
The event will be held on Sunday, Feb 2, from 4 to 6pm. Registration starts at 3pm.
The not-to-be-missed occasion for those crazy about fitness is the Charity Party for PSKS in aid of the Sabah Cancer Volunteers Association (PSKS) building fund for cancer patients.
The mother of all aerobics and fitness sessions, it is jointly-organised by PSKS and Fuze Fitness spearheaded by Sabah’s undisputed Fitness Queen and Martial Arts expert who needs no introduction, FMT Michelle Koh.
Participation fee is RM40 per head but a group of 10 only pay RM350. Further information may be obtained from FMT Zumarlina at 013-8869258, Mimi at 017-3011350 and Elinety at 013-8117988.
Recently, PSKS president Lawrence Imui and Michelle paid a courtesy call on Sabah Sports Board (SSB) chairman Dr KH Tan who kindly approved SSB’s sponsorship of the venue.
The approval is in line with SSB’s CSR progarmme as the Charity Party is to raise funds for the purchase of an accomodation for cancer patients from all over Sabah who come to Kota Kinabalu for treatment.
“It is for the same reason that we agreed to help as it is for charity,” quipped Michelle who expressed the hope that other NGOs would come forward to help PSKS which is greatly in needs of funds.
Meanwhile, PSKS will be organising the 2020 State-level World Cancer Day celebration to be held at the Kiulu community hall near Tamparuli on Tuesday 4 Feb from 8am to 1pm.
The event jointly-organised with the Sabah Council of Social Services is expected to be officiated by Deputy Chief Minister cum Tuaran MP, Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau.
Among the highlights will be talks on cancer, health screening, dental inspection, blood donation, pap-smear campaign and screening for thallesemia and mamogram.
Lawrence urged women in and around Kiulu to grab the golden opportunity as free mamogram testing will be conducted by the National Population and Family Planning Board (LPPKN) and they stand a chance to obtain subsidy under the breast-cancer screening programme.
Apart from LPPKN, agencies supporting the event are KPJ Hospital, the Tuaran Area Health Office, the Tuaran Dental Clinic, the Tuaran Police, SMK Tun Fuad Kiulu, the Kiulu and Sulaman UPPM office, and the Sabah Thallesemia Association.
Lawrence urged the public in and around Kiulu to turn out in full force to support the occasion and at the same time enjoy free health screening and related advice.
