As part of its second-quarter health initiative for 2024, OmniBSIC Bank, the fastest growing bank in Ghana, has organised and successfully executed a 10-kilometer health walk which took place on Saturday, June 29, 2024.

The event brought together enthusiastic staff, loyal customers and members of the public to champion healthy living and community spirit.

CEO of OmniBSIC Bank Ghana, Mr. Daniel Asiedu, underscored the Bank’s unwavering commitment to employee well-being and community health. 

“In today’s world, health issues are increasingly prevalent. As an institution deeply rooted in our community, we prioritize events that promote healthy living and inspire others to do the same.

We encourage all organizations to join us in fostering a healthier Ghana through similar initiatives,” he said.

The morning commenced with a vibrant warm-up and aerobics session at the Forecourt of the State House starting promptly at 5:30 am.

Led by seasoned fitness instructors, participants engaged in dynamic stretches and aerobic exercises designed to prepare them both physically and mentally for the walk ahead.

  • At 6:00 am, amid an atmosphere of anticipation and camaraderie, the health walk officially began.

Participants embarked on a carefully planned 10-kilometer route that traversed central Accra’s bustling streets, offering scenic views of the city’s iconic landmarks and vibrant neighborhoods.

The route not only promoted physical activity but also provided a unique opportunity for participants to appreciate the cultural and architectural richness of their city.

About OmniBSIC Bank

OmniBSIC Bank is a fully-fledged universal bank that traces its roots to a merger between the erstwhile OmniBank and Sahel Sahara Bank.

The merger was spurned by the banking sector consolidation program introduced by the Bank of Ghana (BOG) in 2017, through several directives including the increment of the minimum capital requirement almost fourfold.

The union between the banks is one of the most successful mergers in the financial services industry.

With headquarters at Atlantic Tower, Airport City, and an extensive Branch network of 40 across Ghana, OmniBSIC Bank provides a complete range of products, services, and digital offerings tailored to the needs of its Corporate, SME, and individual customers while supporting the communities in which the Bank operates.
