Walk For Life: Siju Iluyomade leads Governors’ wives, celebrities, others



Arise Women (AW), an age-long humanitarian foundation is set to stage this year’s global initiative tagged Arise Walk For Life. It is billed for Saturday, October 17, 2020.

Its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Siju Iluyomade, will lead governors’ wives, celebrities, and others to a 75-minutes brisk walk across the globe.


With all health protocols in this Coronavirus era as stipulated by the Presidential Taskforce and Lagos State Government, this year’s edition themed ‘Staying Alive’ will be streamed life online from the outset to the finishing line, to further encourage many Nigerians who would not be physically available to join the walk.

Organisers of the health-awareness walk have disclosed that the event would commence at 7:00 am in over 50 clusters across Nigeria, London, United States of America, Canada, and various isolation centres.

Each cluster will have a minimum of 25 persons among who are influencers and celebrities that have always been part of Arise Women.


The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sports and Super Eagles legend, Daniel Amokachi, Olympic Gold Medalist and Sports Administrator, Mary Onyali, former Deputy Governor of Lagos State and Special Adviser to the President on Sustainable Development Goals, Adejoke Orelope Adefulire, popular Disc Jockeys, Humility and Xclusive, Kaffy, DJ Cuppy, Bimbo Akintola, Nathaniel Bassey, Peter Rufai, and others.

Dr. Iluyomade explained that the Arise Walk for Life was a yearly event, as a forerunner to the flagship event, ‘The Arise Women Conference’ which is scheduled for Saturday, October 31, 2020.


“So the focal point of the walk is to have people all over the globe cultivate the habit of exercising, which of course, is not only peculiar to their health and well-being but would also constantly boost a presence of mind that would further improve their professional performance.

According to Friedrich Nietzsche, “all truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” But unfortunately, nowadays, exercise seems to be too complex for people, coupled with the ever-busy attitude peculiar to us in this part of the world. This is why the 75-minute Arise Walk For Life could do a lot to our overall health and professional disposition.”
