Community Walking Program
A Place for Walking
The Shire of Peppermint Grove together with The Town of Mosman Park have launched their new Heart Foundation Walking Program.
The Department of Health advocates that everyone needs to find at least 30 minutes each day to participate in physical activity for good health. It only takes a little activity to gain some big health benefits.
By finding 30 minutes a day you can:
Reduce your risk of coronary heart disease
Lower your risk of diabetes
Lower your blood pressure
Improve your weight
Lower your risk of Osteoporosis
Improve your feeling of wellbeing
Reduce your risk of colon and breast cancer
Walking programs provide the motivation to participate in 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity with the added benefits of socializing with people in your community and enjoying the beautiful surroundings and facilities.
Volunteer Walk Organisers
The programme relies on Volunteer Walk Organisers, and both local governments are seeking registrations from persons interested in participating in the Heart Foundation Walking Programme as Volunteer Walk Organisers. All volunteers need to register, and will participate in a training programme prior to the programme commencing. Dowload a registration form here or register on-line.
For further information, please contact Community Development Officer Vanessa O’Brien at the Shire office on 9286 8600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
