Geneva, May 16.- The World Health Organization (WHO) has launched the Race Walk from Saying to Deed: The Health Challenge for All 2019 to encourage physical activity as part of a sustainable healthy future.

The sporting event will be held on Sunday 19 May over different distances ranging from 3 to 8 kilometers and may participate people of any age and physical preparation.

The organizers intend for this second edition to involve local and international communities in Geneva, as well as those attending the 72nd World Health Assembly.

The event, held for the first time in 2018, will be a health celebration and recognition of the vital role played by the Swiss city as a global health centre.
