The St. Thomas's leg of Jamaica Moves took place at the Rudolph Elder Park on Thursday, March 01, 2018.  'Jamaica Moves' (#Jamoves) is a campaign that was launched under the Ministry of Health in April 2017 to promote healthy lifestyle habits among Jamaicans, in order to reduce non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, heart conditions, cancers, and chronic kidney disease. Among the activities for the day include free health checks, free pap smear test, free dental checkups, outdoor workouts as well as salsa dancing and skipping. There was also a dancing and rock climbing competition for the children.
