Launched in April 2000, the "Healthy Exercise for All Campaign" is a territory-wide event jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Department of Health (DH). With the slogan of "Daily exercise keeps us fit, people of all ages can do it", the Campaign aims at raising the public's interest in doing exercise, promoting the benefits of regular exercise to health, and encouraging the public to build exercise into their daily life and develop a family culture of regular exercise.
Over the past years, the LCSD and the DH have joined hands with the National Sport Associations, professional bodies and schools in organising a series of large-scale promotional activities including the Outdoor Activities Carnival, the Water Carnival, the Indoor Sports Carnival, the Sport-for-All Carnival, the Dance Extravaganza, the Rope Skipping Promotion Day, Brisk walking, Stair climbing, the Autumn Hiking Fun Day, the Active Living Charter, My Exercise Diary and Active Living Carnival so as to call upon the public to do more exercises. Moreover, local sports elites and top athletes from the Mainland were invited to take part in the Roving Sports Demonstrations including Table Tennis, Wushu, Badminton, Basketball, DanceSport, Rope Skipping and Gymnastics. These activities were well received by the public.
Various recreational and sports activities, including those fitness programmes for children, elderly and persons with disabilities, "Hiking Scheme", "QualiWalk Scheme", "Dance for Health" and "Rope Skipping for Fun" etc, are organised by the Department throughout the 18 districts in the territory to facilitate neighbourhood participation. These programmes, with their emphasis on self-practice and regular workouts, are well received by the public and the participation rate is on the rise.
The LCSD has been committed to promoting the "Healthy Exercise for All Campaign". To encourage different sectors of the community to organise activities to promote a sporting culture and a healthy lifestyle, a free loan service for exhibition panels and free download of panel contents are available to schools, elderly centres, youth centres, rehabilitation centres, shopping centres, residential clubhouses, etc. Moreover, the Department has also produced some thematic webpages, posters, banners, promotional leaflets, pamphlets, videos etc. with a view to encouraging members of the public to exercise regularly and lead a healthy lifestyle.
