Virgin Active Quigney makes waves for CHOC

In celebration of Worldwide Aquathon Day last Saturday, the Virgin Active Quigney indoor
swimming pool was filled with participants who made good use of the benefits of aqua
exercises . “The main aim of the event is to create awareness of the benefits one can get from water fitness. There are so many healing benefits —from sore backs, hips, high blood pressure, diabetes. It is also beneficial to those who want to maintain their fitness,” event
organiser Rose Hartzenberg said.

Enthusiasts who participated in the event started off their Saturday morning with a full
aqua fitness workout to upbeat music. World Aquathon Day was celebrated in 223 venues across 72 countries.

“This is for a good cause, as we are doing it for the CHOC Foundation,” Hartzenberg said.
