Free program to get kids active

Want your kids to be more active?

Concerned about your child’s weight or their current activity level?

Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex is offering a free program that may just be the perfect fit for your family.

Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex presents MEND. A free, fun and healthy lifestyle program. MEND is for families with children who are above a healthy weight. There are two programs offered at this time: MEND for 7-13 year-olds and MEND for 5-7 year-olds and their families.

MEND is a 10-week healthy lifestyle program and it offers participants and their parents or caregivers sessions that incorporate a mix of interactive family activities, practical demonstrations, games, tips about healthy foods, label reading, and portion sizes and tools for adopting an overall healthier lifestyle. Families receive a free, three month Strathcona Gardens family pass at the completion of the program.

The next session is January 6 - March 13, 2014, on Mondays from 5:30-7:15 p.m. for 5-7 year-olds and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. for 7-13 year-olds.

Participants must take part in a screening process and be pre-registered in order to participate.
