Virtual Race helps Yamba residents “Get Healthy”

The Yamba Healthy Towns Challenge is coming to an end but not before one final virtual race.  To assist in promoting the activity, Yamba Library will soon have some “Get Healthy” boxes and pedometers available for loan. The boxes will contain easily set up sports equipment that can be used by the whole family. The pedometers will help you determine whether you are achieving your daily 10,000 steps (this is the target set for health). This equipment will be available from mid-May.

“We invite residents of the Clarence Valley to get involved in the inaugural Get on Track Challenge. It is free to join and there are some great prizes including fitness trackers and recipe books for winning teams,” said Jillian Adams, Manager of Health Promotion for the Northern NSW Local Health District.

“The challenge involves forming teams of up to four people and racing along a virtual track by logging your daily fruit and vegetable intake and physical activity.”

“Anyone who has an email address and has access to the internet can get involved. It is a great way to remember how to get your five serves of vegetables, two serves of fruit and some daily physical activity every day, plus it leads to some friendly competition among the teams,” Ms Adams said.

The challenge officially starts on May 4th but registrations are open now!

Get a couple of family members, friends, colleagues or sports team mates together and join the race!
