A week of sporting activities has been launched – ‘Let’s Move Malta.’ This is a week-long initiative of sporting activities in which many people from all walks of life will be involved.
Dr. Lydia Abela, who also serves as the President of Special Olympics Malta, pointed out that this week has a purpose to unite. “The beauty of sport is that it brings many people together,” claimed Dr. Abela. She said that this initiative is in favour of a stronger society and it should encourage more people to get involved in physical activities.
This initiative is being organized in collaboration with Sport Malta under Ministry of Sport. The initiative will kick-off today afternoon with sports activities by the athletes of Special Olympics Malta.
Minister Clifton Grima spoke about the significant investments made in recent years in sports infrastructure and said that these facilities are not only enjoyed by athletes and sportsmen but are also available to the general public. “We are providing top-level facilities throughout our country, and we are also ensuring that schools are well-equipped. We will continue to emphasize the importance of sport and physical activity from a young age.
Mark Cutajar, Chief Executive of Sport Malta, talked about how one should take advantage of opportunities from initiatives like this, so that, through different areas of life, including the workplace, one engages in physical activity in the place where they spend most of their time. He said that, “Through this initiative, we want to show that everyone can engage in physical activity, regardless of age, and most importantly, anywhere. The activities are spread across the Sports Complex of Kirkop, the residential house San Vincenz De Paule, the Sports Complex of Marsa, San Blas, and the Sports Complex of Cottonera.”
