The winner is one who has a clearly defined goal and an overwhelming desire to achieve it. This was the motto of the relay race and pilgrimage from Kietrz to Rome that ended several days ago, in which runners from the Głubczyce District participated. ASA was pleased to be a partner and sponsor of this event.
2016 is a year of many anniversaries in Poland. First of all, it is the 1050th anniversary of Poland’s baptism, but also such national anniversaries as the 360th anniversary of the Lwów Oath made by King Jan Kazimierz and the 60th anniversary of the Oath of the Polish Nation made at Jasna Góra.
For many years ASA has supported the Polish Nationwide Olympics of the Universities of the Third Age and the Senior Citizens' Organizations.
The annual Senior Citizens’ Olympics in Łazy is not just a sports competition. It is also integration, singing, dancing and experiencing joyful moments together. It is also about taking care of a good health condition, which is a value forming a part of ASA’s pro-health policy. For us, health is the most important.
It is commonly known that exercising means health. Yet, almost half of the population of Poles, in particular middle aged people, are not physically active on a regular basis. We spend time at home, in front of our TV sets or computers. Several hours a day spent in a car or at a desk at work is not good for our health, either.
The problem of insufficient physical activity refers also to young people and even to children. If we add stress and an unbalanced diet leading to overweight and obesity to insufficient physical activity, we can be certain to have some health problems.
