Jump-starting the second semester of 2011 with vitality, NRO XI conducted a Kick-off Fitness and Wellness Activity cum Launching of the Office’s Fitness and Wellness Program on 01 July 2011 at the NEDA-RDC Center, Bangkal, Davao City, with the theme “Ang Malusog na NEDAn, sa Serbisyo may Kasiglahan”.

A brief lecture on the benefits of physical fitness and how it can reinforce better Office operations preceded the one-hour physical activity which was actively participated by all staff under the leadership of RD Maria Lourdes D.

The said event which is NRO XI’s initial response to CSC Memorandum Circular No. 8, series of 2011, reiterating the Physical Fitness Program for Government Personnel, was finally materialized through collaborative efforts of the NRO XI’s Fitness Committee and the ONE XI. The Management consequently approved a gender sensitive fitness and wellness program for the rest of the 2011 second semester.

RD Lim, upon the conclusion of the event, enjoined the full staff participation to the fitness and wellness activities lined up for the rest of the year and conveyed her hopes of the initiative’s sustainability.
