The popular National Steps Challenge™ by the Health Promotion Board rounded off its second season with a final thematic challenge named Thirst For Adventure With Coca-Cola Zero Sugar at Resorts World Sentosa over the Labour Day weekend on 30 April. In partnership with Coca-Cola Singapore, the event drew a large crowd of approximately 1,500 participants, including many loyal supporters and fans of the National Steps Challenge.
The National Steps Challenge™ is Singapore’s first national programme to encourage Singaporeans to increase their physical activity levels by taking more steps. Building on the success and unprecedented success of the first season, the second season of the programme launched on 1 Oct 2016 and have since received over 350,000 sign-ups to date.
The competition has been a huge hit with Singaporeans, motivating large numbers of people to take at least 10,000 steps a day to reach their fitness goals. Season 2 ended with a big bang with the final thematic challenge where 500 top National Steps Challenge participants who had qualified for the QR Quest Challenge battled it out for top prizes by clocking as many steps as possible and by finding as many as QR codes as possible from 10am to 3pm.
National Steps Challenge participants who didn’t qualify for the thematic challenge as well as members of the public had their fun in the sun as well at the Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Carnival Zone, where they can take part in activities by Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, TripleFit and Sony and win instant prizes. The kids could also get a customised balloon or glitter tattoos, so there’s something for everyone at the National Steps Challenge’s final thematic challenge, Thirst for Adventure with Coca-Cola Zero Sugar.
Around 23 yogis joined Janna Sukor Ardin, one of the finalists for Fitness Best Elites’ Yoga Instructor of the Year, for a 45-minute yoga session while others received free cans of the new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar by completing activities such as skipping and hula-hooping.
There were also interactive stage games such as Five Stones for young and old to stretch their muscles and clock in more steps. Despite the hot weather, the crowd displayed great enthusiasm in participating in the activities.
The carnival ended on an energetic note with a one-hour mass Zumba workout led by well-known Zumba instructors Dennis Tangkay and Evon Goh.
Mr Zee Yoong Kang, CEO of Health Promotion Board and Mr Tony Del Rosario, General Manager of Coca-Cola Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and Cambodia were present to give away the grand prizes to the lucky winners for the lucky draw as well as the NSC thematic challenge participants.
Overall, the event was a huge success and everyone who joined in the fun in the sun left Resorts World Sentosa with their thirst for adventure quenched by the new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, and many steps closer to their fitness goals!
