Ever wanted to try a new sport or test out a new fitness regime? Now is your chance as 11 local organisations join together to offer free and discounted activities as part of Premier’s Active April.
The Premier’s Active April challenge encourages Victorians to do 30 minutes of physical activity a day during April.
To encourage this locally, sport and fitness organisations have joined Council to put on a month-long program of free or discounted classes and come and try events.
You can sign up for Active April and join the Swan Hill Region team to take advantage of the offers and win prizes.
“We want to encourage as many people as possible to get active and this challenge is a great way to do that,” Councillor Bill Moar said.
“We are thankful that so many local sport, fitness and health providers have generously come on board with free, discounted and once-off classes throughout the month,” Cr Moar said.
