As the Official Insurance and Healthcare Sponsor, Bupa continues its mission to build a healthier city for the broader Hong Kong community. |
The sponsorship aligns with Bupa's Healthy Cities initiative, which promotes healthy lifestyles and programmes that encourage positive environmental impacts. The initiative builds on Bupa's belief that people's health and wellbeing are interconnected and affected by the health of our planet.
In addition to the Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens sponsorship, Bupa will launch the 'Healthy Cities Pop-up Truck', which will tour around the City from 17 March to 2 April 2023 - providing people with an opportunity to learn about healthy living and the importance of physical and mental wellness through an immersive gaming and digital experience.
The pop-up truck will feature a gigantic rugby ball, two interactive digital games, and a free health check station using the latest AI technology . In addition, fans of the tournament will have the opportunity to test their rugby knowledge and experience the energy of the sport through digital gamification.
Andrew Merrilees , Managing Director, Bupa Hong Kong, said: 'At Bupa, we believe the concept of Healthy Cities represents an integrated approach that looks after the health of people, communities, and the planet we share. Through the Hong Kong Sevens sponsorship, we have an opportunity to raise the awareness of how to live a healthy lifestyle in the City of Hong Kong, whilst looking after the world in which we depend on.'
Through the theme 'Be the Best You', Bupa has prioritised physical health and mental wellness, as well as playing a bigger part in planetary health. Selfcare and awareness is the first step to managing and understanding one's health, this is why Bupa has partnered with PanopticAI to provide free health checks for the broader community via the pop-up event.
By scanning the face, participants will be able to get an assessment of their health index, stress level, skin texture and other vital signs in just 30-seconds. After completing activities on the truck, participants will receive gifts, such as OATLY Oat Drink or a rugby-shaped stress ball.
Andrew Merrilees added: 'The Hong Kong Sevens sponsorship is part of Bupa's Healthy Cities initiative that can help people connect personal and planetary health and ultimately become the best version of themselves. Bupa will continue to work with partners and create programmes to build a healthier city and future for all.'
