The St. Philip Parish Independence Committee launched its parish project “Ah like maself, Ah like ma health” in Zumba style last night.
Zumba instructor Rasheeda Nightingale, took more than 50 participants through high energy routines that left some breathless and others ready for more.
Parish ambassadors, Shakeria Trotman and Shomario Harrison, along with their attendant Wilma Wiggins, expressed joy at the level of interest and enthusiasm shown to their first official event in support of the theme “Ah like maself, Ah like ma health”.
Miss Barbados World 2001, Stephanie Chase, was seen in the midst of the class and she too said: “With greater importance now being paid to the increasing levels of obesity throughout the Caribbean. We in Barbados need to take our physical and mental health more seriously. This is a great initiative by the ambassadors. I’m very proud of them!”
Other activities planned include a church service on Sunday June 2 at Rhema Weslyan Holiness, Six Roads St. Philip and a healthy lifestyle fair at the Princess Margaret Secondary School on July 5.
