Walk for Wellness 2023 will run from 1-31 October, coinciding with National Mental Health Month and WHO World Mental Health Day on Tuesday 10 October. Travel industry participants can walk solo, with colleagues or take a hosted walk with their local NCL business development manager via the free MoveSpring mobile app, which easily syncs with users’ mobile and wearable devices.
‘Walk for Wellness was initially conceived during the pandemic to support our travel agents during challenging times. Since then, our industry has demonstrated remarkable strength, resilience and unity, but it’s critical we continue to prioritise mental and physical wellbeing,’ says Ben Angell, MD and VP APAC, NCL. ‘Last year, 1000 travel partners walked with us, this year we’re aiming higher and asking the entire ANZ travel community to join us.’
Walkers will be invited to ‘Think International, Think NCL’, by walking around a world map, with a focus on destinations popular with Australian and New Zealand cruisers, such as Hawaii, Alaska, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Asia, unlocking weekly challenges and prizes along the way. The first 300 registrations will receive a Walk for Wellness 2023 cap.
NCL has pledged to donate $1,000 each time a milestone is reached to mental health charity Mood Active, which empowers people to better manage mental health through exercise.
