Initiated by sports, fitness & wellness news/media, AsiaFitnessToday.com – the Move8 Fitness Movement is on a mission! We call it Mission 2030 where all actions lead to halving non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with a focus on halving obesity rates in the region by 2030 in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals #3.
How will we achieve this?
By creating awareness about the importance of physical movement in our daily lives; using Rhythm & Movement as Therapy. Life is so much more fun when we move to rhythm, and let those positive vibes reverberate throughout every cell in our body. In other words, let’s Move it, LAH!
How is Move8 funded?
All profits generated from this movement via Move8 Marketplace directly fund Move8. This includes fundraising events, grants & sponsorships and merchandise sales. For partnership or corporate sponsorship inquiries, click here.
