Department of Health to organise roving roadshow health campaign
     The Department of Health (DH) will organise a roving roadshow health campaign in July and August this year to encourage members of the public to engage in physical activities in order to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCD) by developing and living a healthy lifestyle.
     The roadshow health campaign will be held at designated locations across seven districts in Hong Kong. The first session of the campaign will be held next Tuesday to Sunday (July 9-14) at Tin Tsz Shopping Centre in Tin Shui Wai and the next will be held at Long Ping Commercial Centre in Yuen Long (July 16-21), Choi Yuen Plaza in Sheung Shui (July 23-28), Chung On Shopping Centre in Ma On Shan (July 30-August 4), Shun Lee Commercial Centre in Kwun Tong (August 6-11), Fung Tak Shopping Centre in Wong Tai Sin (August 13-18) and Leung King Plaza in Tuen Mun (August 20-25).
     To motivate the public to take the first step to "move for health" and make physical activity part of their daily lives, DH has developed and choreographed three aerobic dances for the roadshow health campaign, namely Lively Dance, Stretching Dance and Household Fitness Dance. The campaign mascot Lazy Lion will join every Sunday (i.e. event day) and there will be demonstration of the three dances. The public can also join to move for health.  Interactive games, prize quiz, photo booth with Lazy Lion, health information leaflets and exhibition panels will also be featured during the roadshow.
     The roadshow health campaign is part of the "Healthy Hong Kong 2025 | Move for Health" campaign which was launched by DH in December last year. The campaign aims to encourage the public to "move for health" and increase their physical activity to build an active lifestyle and prevent NCD.
     Members of the public are invited to take part in the roadshow. The schedule is as follows:
  Games and Exhibition Days (1pm-7pm) Event Day (11am-5pm)
