June 6th is National Health and Fitness Day…
And for the first time, there’s an act of Parliament to back it up.
West Vancouver Sunshine Coast MP John Weston, and BC Senator and former Olympian Nancy Greene Raine have been urging municipalities to proclaim the day, and offer special discounts or activities at their recreation facilities.
Weston says celebrating and encouraging physical fitness is also good for the economy.
In our area all the local governments on the Sunshine Coast have proclaimed today National Health and Fitness Day. So have Nanaimo and Parksville.
Check with your local parks and rec department for information on special events.
