Needless For Girls Project, Okyeame Kwame’s Hepatitis B Health Walk, and Kwabena Kwabena Save Life Concert to win the award at the 2018 Ghana Event Awards.

The Awards, organized by Event Guide magazine, came off at the Suzuki Ghana showroom in Accra last Friday. 

The scheme awards and celebrates indigenous Ghanaian event organizers who set the pace for excellence in event management across the country and beyond.

Walk with Lexis, which kicked off in 2016, has over the past two years seen hundreds of Ghanaians climb up the Aburi Mountain. It encourages the culture of exercising and healthy living among Ghanaians.

Walk with Lexis has seen patronage from well-known personalities including Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman Manu; Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, former Minister for Youth and Sports; and Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM).

Participants of Walk with Lexis, apart from walking up the Aburi Mountain, also engage in vigorous aerobics, health talk, and screening. They also win amazing prizes on the day.

An elated Lexis Bill, after winning the award, shared the honour with patrons of the health walk and thanked them for making the event a success.

Thanks to God and to everybody who has joined us up the Aburi mountain to walk from Ayi Mensah to Peduase. Our mission was to get as many Ghanaians interested in health and fitness as possible and we have made tremendous successes.”
