#BeActive – European Week of Sport

#BeActive, Stay Healthy, Keep Distance!

Activity is health! Regular movement boosts our mental and physical wellbeing and helps us handle stress and stay motivated.  That’s the main message of the European Week of Sport, and its especially true in these COVID-19 times! 

This is the third year that Georgia is part of this international initiative, and in spite of the COVID-19 restrictions, so far there have been over 80 events and 35 000 engaged local citizens! That’s a success!
