Kyabram and district residents urged to get up and active in April

By Kyabram Free Press

KYABRAM and district residents are encouraged to register online and commit to 30 minutes of physical activity a day this coming month as part of Active April.

Campaspe Shire Council will be going head to head with Kyabram and District Health Service, Echuca Regional Health, Rochester Elmore District Health Service, Waranga Health (GV Health), Njernda and Community Living and Respite Services to see which organisation has the most Active April.

The organisation with the highest average of people completing at least 30 minutes of activity a day for the month will win.

Economic and community development general manager Keith Oberin said now, more than ever, was the time to maintain your health and wellbeing, even if you were doing so from home.

“While there are restrictions due to the coronavirus, there are still many ways to challenge your classmates, work colleagues, friends and family to get active this April,” he said.

“Walking out in the fresh autumn air, going on a bike ride and even gardening at home are all fantastic ways to remain healthy and safe in the current environment.

“Even if you are choosing to be active at home, you can still register your time spent exercising in your lounge room and backyard.”

The Active April website allows users to log their daily activities and provides tools and tips to keep you on track.

Registering for the Premier’s Active April is free and can be done online at activeapril.vic.gov.au
