The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will hold the “Sport For All Day 2017” on 6 August 2017 to encourage people of all ages and those with disabilities to maintain a healthy lifestyle by participating in various sports activities and forming the habit of exercising at least half an hour a day. A celebration event for the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, this year’s “Sport For All Day” has dance as its theme to invite the general public to participate in sports activities and share the joy of our return to the Motherland. On the day, a series of free recreation and sports programmes will be offered at designated LCSD venues across the 18 districts, while most of the LCSD’s recreation and sports facilities will be open for free use by the public.
“Let’s Dance”, a dance programme launched by the LCSD from February to July 2017 as a prelude to “Sport For All Day 2017”, offers outreach demonstrations and promotes a variety of dance activities in the community. It aims at encouraging people to dance with their neighbours and develop the habit of regular exercise for all-round well-being.
