On the 22nd January 2016, Vision Care Givers international in collaboration with Inspiration FM Uyo hosted a state wide fitness exercise at the Uyo township stadium. The program was attended by top government officials including the state commissioner of police and other special forces.

After the fitness exercise vision care givers where present to conduct free eye examination for participants.
