An alignment of effort and agendas between the Saint Lucia Health & Wellness Retreat and the annual Yoplait Walk for Cancer aims to heighten awareness leading to behavior change in lifestyles and life choices. Importantly, integrating Health & Wellness Retreat participants with the mass resident crowd that is expected to turn out to walk for cancer will reinforce the message about cancer awareness.

Public Relations manager at the SLTB John Emmanuel says with the Health & Wellness Retreat coinciding with the Yoplait Walk, the partnership between the  Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB) with CFL, also leverages the promotional machinery of one event in support of the other.

Deputy Director of the SLTB Tracey Warner Arnold says the object of the Health & Wellness Retreat is to reinforce the benefits of rest and relaxation; the natural option for diet and body care; and also that exercise is not an option but an essential part of the health regime especially considering what goes into most processed food.

Mr Emmanuel explained that the collaboration with CFL on the Cancer awareness campaign also coincided with the health and Wellness Retreat currently taking place here. According to health officials, Cancers impacting the prostate, breasts and lymph combined, make the condition the leading cause of death in Saint Lucia.
