The Township of Tiny Community Recreation Committee held its annual Health & Fitness Day on Saturday, June 2, 2018. National Health and Fitness Day is an initiative to make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth! Tiny’s Health and Fitness Day provides an opportunity for the Township to celebrate and promote the use of local health, recreational, sports and fitness facilities. It’s a way to inspire Canadians to become fitter and more active.
The event kicked off at 10 a.m. with the Tiny Trot hosted by the Township of Tiny Trails and Active Transportation Committee. At Bernie LeClair Parkette, over 40 ‘Trotters’ set off on a 3 KM run, walk or bike along the Tiny Rail Trail. The Committee also recognized International Trails Day, an annual celebration of trails to promote trail development, the use of trails and the healthy lifestyle they encourage. It is celebrated each year on the first Saturday in June.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the festivities continued at the Perkinsfield Park with a Bike Rodeo, Helmet Safety Check Station, Fitness Class Demos, Tiny’s Mobile Skate Park, Soccer for Life Demonstrations, Tiny’s Day Camp Meet and Greet and over 15 Health & Wellness Exhibitor Booths. The Township of Tiny’s Accessibility Advisory Committee seized the occasion to celebrate National AccessAbility Week (May 27 to June 2, 2018). This is a time for Canadian to promote inclusion and accessibility in our communities and workplaces, and celebrate the contributions of Canadians with disabilities.
Approximately 250 people enjoyed the activities, including the $2 Pizza Lunch! To view moments from the Township of Tiny’s 2018 National Health & Fitness Day, please visit our Facebook Page or Website using the links below.
