With the support of 60 associations and federations such as IHRSA, ISPA, CIDESCO, and ROTARY Clubs in Latin America, venues will inspire local residents to be more active, more often, encouraging finding a fitness partner or “wellness buddy” to set goals towards longer, healthier and happier lives.
