Celebrate Move for Health Day this Friday

A full day of free classes and activities is planned Friday, May 10 at the Frank Jameson Community Centre in Ladysmith.

This Friday is Move for Health Day, and there are many ways to join in the celebration of active living.

Move for Health Day is an international event created in 2002 by the World Health Organization to promote physical activity. Events are held to bring people together in the spirit of fun and inclusivity.

In the spirit of International Move for Health Day, Ladysmith Parks, Recreation and Culture is offering a full day of free classes and activities at the Frank Jameson Community Centre that will help you in your quest for a healthy and active lifestyle Friday, May 10.

Space is limited, so people are encouraged to register by calling 250-245-6424.

Later in the month, the Ladysmith and District Credit Union (LDCU) will keep the spirit of Move for Health Day alive. Once again this year, the LDCU’s health and safety committee is planning a week-long walk/scavenger hunt initiative.

The committee is busy rewriting its scavenger hunt clues, and the LDCU is targeting the week of May 27-31. For information about how to participate, contact Kim Judson at 250-245-6390 or KJudson@ldcu.ca.
