Get your move on and take a picture!

Residents are being asked to celebrate Move for Health Day on May 10 by either heading out solo, with a friend or the family, or join Ladysmith Parks and Rec for one of the many great planned events.

Take a picture of yourself in action, biking, hiking running or whatever your move is and post it on Instagram between May 10 and May 12. Make sure to tag @ladysmithprc and include a hashtag with the trail or location name (for example #hollandcreek) for a chance to win a survival backpack!
