Saudi Sports for All Federation Wraps up "Move With Us" Event in Jeddah

The Saudi Sports for All Federation today marked the conclusion of the "Move With Us" initiative in Jeddah. Held at the Corniche Jeddah circuit (F1), the event saw the involvement of approximately 2 000 participants.


With the vision of promoting running, the initiative set courses of 3.5 kilometers for adults and 1 kilometer specially designated for children and individuals with special needs. In line with SFA’s commitment to inclusive physical activities, the initiative placed significant emphasis on attracting more individuals with special needs.  


The initiative successfully conveyed the message of the importance of incorporating regular physical activity and sports into the daily routines of individuals and families’ lifestyles. The message further emphasized the benefits of physical activity, which include physical, mental, and social well-being, stress management, and lower risk of noncommunicable diseases.


The "Move With Us" initiative, launched by the Federation in October 2022, is a community sports program that contributes to achieving the goals of Saudi Vision 2030 in enhancing the quality of life. The initiative encourages a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and it has received a warm welcome from various participant groups.


Since its inception in October 2022, the initiative has managed to attract around 15,000 participants, both citizens, and residents of all ages, who engaged in walking and running activities covering distances ranging from 1 to 5 kilometers, as well as cycling distances ranging from 10 to 14 kilometers. The initiative has also succeeded in its goal of targeting a larger number of non-active individuals through its engaging sports events, igniting a healthy spirit of competition.


It's worth noting that the initiative has traveled through 13 cities across various regions of the Kingdom, including Makkah, Yanbu, Tabuk, Al-Ula, Jazan, Al-Madinah, Hail, Riyadh, Al-Khobar, Jeddah, Al-Ahsa, Al-Baha, and Abha. It has stood out as a multi-faceted initiative, impacting human and social aspects, opening interactive spaces for both Saudi and non-Saudi individuals of all genders, while integrating families and individuals from all age groups in its activities.
