The eight-week challenge, running April 22 to June 16, is open to all Red Deer families, who will receive weekly challenges to encourage them to try new things and learn new habits. Once registered, families will receive an information package and will be invited to sign up for free events, including:
Participants will also receive a 40 per cent discount to the Move Your Mood Family 3-km Fun Run on May 11. To register, contact Move Your Mood co-ordinator Denise Fredeen by April 15 at 403-406-5665 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Red Deer Public Schools will also run an additional eight-week Move Your Mood school-based challenge, encouraging students to take part in other scheduled activities and having them evaluate how being active can improve physical and mental health.
