SUNSHINE Coast Council want to help you improve the way you move, eat, sleep, think and connect with others and have launched their ‘Healthy Sunshine Coast’ initiative which links participants with low-cost health and wellbeing activities.
The classes on offer will be held across the region and Healthy Sunshine Coast is an affordable and holistic community health and wellbeing initiative that supports and encourages our community to be active, have fun and meet new friends.
The aim of the program is to encourage:
*positive mental health and resilience
*regular physical activity
*strong social connections
*participation across all ages and abilities.
Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said the 2023 program had something for everyone, from GROOVE dance at Kenilworth, meditation, and Forest Bathing at the Maroochy Botanical Gardens, over 50s fitness at Buderim and so much more.
“We hope to get everyone on the Sunshine Coast involved to foster a happier, healthier and more connected region,” Cr Law said.
Registration is free, but essential and can be made via council’s website at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and searching for ‘Healthy Sunshine Coast’. Once signed up, residents will be able to attend a range of low-cost health and wellbeing activities around the region, which are either $10 or $5 with a Health Care/Pensioner card.
Registered participants will receive email updates and information on classes and how to book and activities will be added over time. Ensure you are registered to keep up to date and make 2023 the year you take advantage of this great low-cost healthy initiative from council.
