Over the past weekend we embarked on our follow-up BHP intervention in the community of Bonteheuwel in association with CHEC and the City of Cape Town. Although the day was off to a rainy start, we were able to assist 6 of our previous participants as well as three new participants.
Over the past three months we have been providing weekly guidance, monitoring and exercise prescription to the community in order to increase their physical health profiles. Though it has been challenging with regular high violence and crime in the area, it did not deter us from our objective which was to make a difference in the community. We will be continuing our efforts and will be conducting the BHP in other areas as well. If you have a community in need, let us know!
We are currently drafting two manuscripts for publication, watch out for them!
