This was not the first time Minister Jacobs had completed the 6k route as this had been part of her morning exercise, a routine walk designed to get Sint Maarten into the mindset of healthier habits.

The ‘You 2 Can Move’ walk is part of a promotional campaign to motivate fitness on the island. The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports joins the Prime Minister in encouraging the population of Sint Maarten to strive to live a healthier lifestyle, including regular exercise and healthy eating.
