Find Your Fit! Campaign Encourages Active, Healthy Living

 

The Honourable Clyde Jackman, Minister of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development, joined more than 200 students at Sacred Heart Elementary in Corner Brook today to participate in the Sneakin’ It In! School Challenge, part of Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador’s Find Your Fit! physical activity campaign.

 

“The Provincial Government supports Find Your Fit! through a $90,000 investment to promote physical activity throughout the province. The newly-established Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development is leading the charge when it comes to the promotion of physical activity and wellness for citizens of all ages, so I am taking the opportunity to issue a personal challenge to everybody in the province, regardless of age, to make regular physical activity a part of their daily routine.”

The Honourable Clyde Jackman, Minister of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development

 

Over 1,450 students from more than 60 Grade 4 classes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador took part in the Sneakin’ It In! School Challenge this week, which was held in conjunction with Education Week and Kids Eat Smart Week.

 

“As president of Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador, I am excited about our Find Your Fit! Physical Activity Campaign. Through our continued partnership with the Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development, we strive to engage Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to lead healthier, active lives. The Find Your Fit! website, tools and resources will show individuals just how easy it is to fit in physical activity throughout their day.”

Blair Delaney, President, Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador

 

The Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development aligns government-wide efforts to promote overall wellness in areas such as healthy eating, physical activity, being smoke-free, recreation and sport.
