Two-day carnival inspires physical and mental well-being
Allowing citizens to unwind and rejuvenate to become a BetterMe
HONG KONG, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — AXA BetterMe Weekend, the iconic annual carnival hosted by AXA Hong Kong and Macau (AXA) on 28 and 29 October 2023, was a resounding success over the two days, with an unprecedented turnout of over 12,000 participants. The AXA BetterMe Weekend took place in the vibrant AXA x WONDERLAND @ West Kowloon Cultural District. This year, the event featured exciting new additions, including the “BetterMe Maze” and a 3.3-metre-tall bouncy castle, igniting a festive atmosphere throughout the entire weekend. Participants of all ages had a relaxing and enjoyable experience by taking part in simple yet meaningful games and had the chance to win wonderful prizes, allowing adults and children alike to truly live out a BetterMe experience.
Riding on the World Mental Health Day in October, AXA hosted the AXA BetterMe Weekend for the third consecutive year, with a focus on promoting a healthy lifestyle. This year’s event featured a range of recreational facilities and various themed booths centred around three main themes: “Mind Health”, “Physical Health”, and “Wellness and ESG”. These activities seamlessly integrated messages into various games about physical and mental well-being, as well as sustainable living. Participants had the opportunity to temporarily escape the bustling pace of urban life, enjoy moments of joy with their families and friends, and infuse the community with positive energy.
AXA has always upheld its mission to “Act for human progress by protecting what matters”. Throughout this year, the company has organised several events and introduced innovative products to realise its aspiration of becoming a well-rounded partner for individuals, businesses, and communities.
