Cerrejón is reactivating the healthy lifestyle program that, due to its face-to-face nature, had to be halted due to the COVID-19 emergency. However, during the early days of the quarantine, the company’s Health area sought alternatives to keep sending out the message on education in physical activity, healthy eating, and a full life.

“We are happy to announce that this week we are restarting our Cerrejón in Motion activities. We have decided to transform and migrate to a virtual model using collaborative digital platforms that will allow us to reach the homes of families in the region. Many of the activities are open to anyone. There is no excuse. We have to keep looking after ourselves both physically and mentally. Lifestyles with behaviours of self-care undoubtedly make it possible for people to have better health to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection”, ffirmed Doctor Hugo Piedrahita, Cerrejón’s head of Health.

Cerrejón in Motion is a program benefiting around 5,000 people. It reaches people in 13 municipalities of La Guajira as well as in Bogotá, Valledupar, Barranquilla, Santa Marta, and Cartagena, cities with concentrations of Cerrejón workers and in which this new mode can reach the general public.

Cerrejón in Motion has been very important for me because it has given me the opportunity to change my lifestyle and improve my health. I am very happy that they are back, even in this virtual format. This gives us the opportunity of following our routine daily”, concluded Jimmys Cujía, a Cerrejón employee and beneficiary of the Cerrejón in Motion program.
