Go4 Fun in CASINO helps children get fitter, healthier and happier

Go4Fun Program in Casino helps children get fitter, healthier and happier

The Go4Fun Program is an initiative offering free healthy lifestyle sessions for 7 to 13 year olds who are above a healthy weight, and their families.
Northern NSW Local Health District is running a Casino Term 2 program on Thursdays from 4pm-6pm, commencing 3rd May, 2018.

Families take part in fun 2-hour sessions, each week for 10 weeks.
The Program helps them improve their eating and physical activity habits, thereby improving children’s fitness, physical activity levels, nutrition and self-esteem. Thanks to funding from NSW Health, the program is offered to families completely free of charge.

“The Go4Fun Program can really change families’ lives,” Northern NSW Local Health District Health Promotion Manager, Jillian Adams, said.

“We offer a friendly, relaxed atmosphere to encourage children to give new things a go and show parents how they can be supportive and involve the whole family in making healthier choices and following an active lifestyle.
“Children become healthier and fitter while their self-esteem and confidence increases greatly. We very much hope families will take up the chance to improve their health with this fantastic free program.”
Enrolments are being taken now!
