Healthy Futures has some exciting news to share! Following on from the success of the Kaukau100 initiative by local mum and Healthy Futures volunteer, Toni Shanks, we are proud to introduce you to Healthy Steps.
Healthy Steps is our fifth and latest initiative supporting children, families, and their whanau to provide solutions that make healthy choices easier.
Healthy Steps supports communities to be active and exercise together through a shared goal. By providing the tools needed to start up a group or put people in touch with an existing group, we hope it will be easier for families to keep active.
Healthy Steps is fun, free and open to everyone.
Feeling nervous about starting a new activity? Healthy Steps enables you to set your own goals, exercise at your own pace, and meet people in your community to support and keep active with you.
Connecting through Facebook means it’s accessible and convenient to stay in touch with others in the group. Feel like walking at 6am? Post a message on Facebook and see who wants to join you. Can’t make 6am, then consider taking the family after school or on the weekend. Healthy Steps offers you the convenience of working around your schedule.
Try something different. Why not organise a group Onesie walk? Or plan an afternoon picnic, an Easter egg hunt, or a dawn walk followed by a shared breakfast - the options are endless.
Whatever you choose, Healthy Steps creates a wonderful sense of belonging in your community while motivating you and your family to achieve your exercise goal.
So come on, what are you waiting for?
