Move for Health Day

Move For Health Day

Sunday, May 10, 2015

Mark your calendars - May 10 is Move for Health Day, and we are encouraging everyone to get out and get moving! Move for Health Day is an international event created in 2002 by the World Health Organization to promote physical activity. Join people and communities from around the world - let's all get out there and be active!

Facts, Tips & Benefits

It is a frightening thought to know that physical inactivity is costing Canadian taxpayers approximately $6.8 billion dollars a year. On a positive note, getting moving and being active is associated with as much as a 30% reduction in all causes of mortality rates.

Exercise produces only great and positive side effects and helps prevent all kinds of disease. So come on, Burnaby... what are we waiting for... let’s get moving!
