SINT MAARTEN (CAY HILL) – Despite fears of COVID- 19 and bad weather, “Healthy Body Healthy Mind Hike” hosted by the Mental Health Foundation was well attended. Social distancing was high effect as participants made their way during the early morning hours at the Helmich Snijders Hillside Christian School (St. Peters) to the top of Marigot Hill.
Participants were informed in advance to make sure they are open and follow COVID-19 protocol guidelines and those experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, to leave the hike and seek medical attention immediately. Hand sanitizers and masks were also made available to everyone in attendance.
MHF would like to thank this year’s sponsor the Guardian Group for their contribution to the event. In addition MHF would like to express gratitude to this year’s participants for their assistance in following protocol and having a safe and healthy hike. “During this era of COVID- 19 our personal health is now a mutual concern: unless everyone is safe, no one is safe, thus a lot of thought and preparation went into the carrying out of this event, stated MHF Executive Assistant Cyrille Brooks.
