… Organises Walk, Football Talent Show
… Says Nigeria Has the Best of Brains, Passionate People
… Urges Nigerians To Focus on Preventive Health Than Curative
The Convener of ARISE, Pastor Siju Iluyomade has advised Nigerians to focus more on preventive healthcare rather than curing illnesses.
She gave this advice at the press briefing heralding the 2022 ARISE programmes. According to her, ARISE has positively impacted over 50million women globally.
“And we must expand the scope of our influence more by helping the less-privileged and vulnerable groups.”
“We need to teach our children early on how to be entrepreneurs because ARISE is a generational agenda that is out to empower millions of Nigeria.
Some women who have benefitted from many ARISE programmes expressed their appreciation to Dr Iluyomade for helping the needy.
The Arise Walk for Life Convener, Dr. Siju Iluyomade, reiterated the fact that the primary goal of organizing the annual event was for the health benefits of all participants.
The 2022 Arise Charity Walk has been planned to take place in clusters across different local government areas and countries of the world, including Nigeria (Lagos), Canada, USA, United Kingdom, Singapore, etcetera.
Come this Saturday, October 15, 2022, with the theme; #AppointedToLive, the health walk will begin simultaneously by 7am Nigerian time.
Participants are already registered in their clusters on the Arise Walk website.
Iluyomade emphasised the critical need to keep fit and encourage preventive illness instead of a curative approach through walk and various forms of exercises because walking helps improve our health.
According to her, apart from the many health benefits, participants in this year’s walk stand a chance of winning up to $5,000 for the best cluster.
“Nigeria is blessed with the best brains and passionate people and we really must begin to encourage ourselves by actually doing the work.
“At ARISE, we take health very seriously because you need to be in sound health to do anything tangible. The Arise Walk for Life is a place for everyone irrespective
