Hundreds of people took to walk for health on Ayi-Mensah Peduse Road at Aburi to mark Easter Monday Holiday

Hundreds of Ghanaians took the opportunity of the holiday to walk for health on the Ayi Mensah Peduase stretch of road.

As early as 5:30 am April 18, 2022, Ayi Mensah was filled with the young and old, eagerly waiting to begin the trails. At about 5 kilometers into the walk, the clouds started to gather, warning of possible rain. This did not deter the many who gathered to continue the brisk walk, edging each other amidst the chanting of songs.

But at last, the clouds gave way and the rains came down heavily.

The hundreds did not mind the heavy downpour and bravely walked through the rains to exercise.

Among the many gathered were members from the Holy Spirit Fire Centre Assembly of God in Tema, Individuals, and supporters of the Asamoah Boateng Camp, vying for the NPP Chairmanship.

Also among the hundreds were children who did not show any sign of tiredness or fear as they matched the adult’s boot for boot to reach the final stage of the walk.

After almost 6000 steps on the almost 13 kilometers distance from Ayi Mensah to Peduase, those who gathered were taken through aerobics amidst loud music.

The Acting Head of the Holy Spirit Fire Centre, Rev. Desmond Anderson indicated that the church organised the walk to press home the importance of exercise to the body.

”The walk will also firm up the unity that exists in the church”, he opined.

Participants described the rains as a blessing, especially on a good day such as Easter Monday. A few firstcomers narrated how they nearly gave up going up and hill, staying back to join their friends on the way down but did not do so because of the encouragement of strangers also walking.

On the whole, many described the walking exercises as ”the best picnic ever”.
