As part of its Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR), Norrenberger, a leading financial services Group has sensitized winners from its 2022 Fitlife Event and other participants on financial planning.

The Group sensitized the people during a “Meet & Greet with the 2022 Norrenberger Abuja Fitlife Winners”, held in Abuja over the weekend.

Sequel to this, Norrenberger hosted fitness enthusiasts and dignitaries at Norrenberger Abuja Fitlife 2022 by partnering with Bodyline Fitness and Gym to host its 3rd Annual Event on December 3, 2022.

The event brought together over 1500 participants and close to 3000 registrants to one location for a premium fitness and fun experience with an opportunity to network with the broader fitness community and financial advisors. It was also an opportunity to sensitize the public on the importance of fitness, wellness, health and wealth.

The event featured fun and entertaining fitness activities and competitions including a half marathon, Abuja Fittest challenge and Abuja Strongest challenge in male and female categories. Winners in these categories went home with a total cumulative cash prize of N40 million.

Speaking at the Meet and Greet event held over the weekend, the Group Chief Finance Officer (CFO), Nkiru Chime explained that as a financial organization, they are always looking for initiatives and avenues to make impact on their teams, clients and the community.

“We partnered with Bodyline Fitness and Gym to host its 3rd Annual Event. We found Bodyline to be a reputable potential partner with the same impact goals, on the health scale, and immediately moved to establish the mutually, and communally beneficial partnership, bringing health and wealth together.

“The first Abuja Fit Life hosted by Norrenberger and Bodyline took place in December, and it was a resounding success. We rallied the Abuja fitness and even the non-fitness communities together for a day of fun, music, family and fitness. Over three thousand people showed up in person for the Abuja Fit Life 2022, and out of the exhilarating tournaments, winners emerged.

“As a long-term partnership, we are looking forward to more. We will deliver a bigger fitness festival this year and announce new ways to reach more people with our joint, timely message that health is wealth. We will help more Nigerians on their way to growing their funds and imbibing a healthy lifestyle,” she added.

She further stated that one of the Group’s strategic plan is to deepen financial inclusion in the country.

“We observed that some people don’t have financial management skills to manage their funds hence the need to sensitise and work with them to achieve financial inclusion.

“We cannot tell people how to invest but we can guide them and that is what we are doing with our winners from the Fitlife event,” she said.

One of the winners, Shaibu Shehu appreciated Norrenberger for the opportunity and hopes that the Group will continue and get bigger by sponsoring them to represent the country in globally.
