Liga Colombiana de Lucha contra la Osteoporosis

LIGA campaigns focus on exercise and calcium intake in youth

LIGA COLOMBIANA DE LUCHA CONTRA LA OSTEOPOROSIS is carrying out a campaign to increase the consumption of milk, specially in children. This campaign, which focuses on prevention, ties into the planned activities for WOD. To emphasize the importance of exercise, the LIGA is planning to work with elementary and high schools in different cities across the country to encourage young people to exercise. During the WOD, many young people from everywhere in Colombia will be exercising at noon, and they will be informed about osteoporosis and exercise. The LIGA will hold a program in thw most important park in Bogota, with gymnastics demonstrations, a great walk around, and free BMD measurement for about 600 people, who previously must take the "IOF one minute test". Also, (not confirmed yet) the LIGA will try to arrange an "all star soccer game" with famous Colombian veteran players. Further information to follow.
