Alba Wellness Valley by Fusion is bringing Global Wellness Day to the children of Vietnam on June 8 with a day of fun-filled celebrations and a powerful message about wellness and the environment.

More than 200 kids from local communities surrounding Alba Wellness Valley in the foothills of the Truong Son Mountain Range in central Vietnam will spend the day with their families learning what wellness means to them and to the world they live in.

A welcome address and education session by Fusion General Manager Mr. Hylton Lipkin will encourage the children and their parents to consider more active choices towards living a healthy and fulfilling life and raise awareness about the growing concerns over the use of plastic.

“Wellness is considered the absence of illness, and this can be interpreted in many ways, but for Alba Wellness Valley, Global Wellness Day is about living a healthy life and keeping our planet healthy,” Mr. Lipkin explained.

“Wellness as a lifestyle choice should be taught from childhood, as children who understand the importance of living well go on to become more successful and healthier adults, able to achieve more professionally and express themselves freely in their social lives,” he added.

Children will attend physical fitness and tai chi classes in the resort’s jungle camping area, before taking part in a competition to see how many people can slide down the longest zip line in Vietnam in just one hour.

Other activities will include building a house and a boat out of plastic bottles, aimed at helping children understand the impact plastic has on their health and the environment. Kids will also take part in a clean-up session in the forest surrounding the resort.

A vegetarian lunch and refreshments will be provided to all those who attend the event to highlight the importance of a healthy diet, and children will be given a free bottle of water by Alba Water.

Once the event has finished, children and their families will be free to enjoy the Thanh Tan hot springs and pools, as well as the other outdoor activities offered Alba Wellness Valley, including the resort’s farm, craft village, and kids’ club.

It only takes a single day to change your life. This is the message brought to us for the eighth annual Global Wellness Day, to be held at over 5,000 locations in more than 150 countries and territories worldwide.

First celebrated in Turkey in 2012, Global Wellness Day encourages us to pause and think, even if for just one day a year, about the value of our lives. It promotes awareness about living well and increases motivation for living free from the stresses of daily urban life and the bad habits that form from this.
