NEWS RELEASE

CITY OF SAULT STE. MARIE

*************************
A public open house will be held on Oct. 19 to discuss healthy habits for youth in the community. The session will take place at Algoma Public Health from noon – 1:30 p.m. in the Dubreuville and John Rowswell Rooms (APH 02 and APH 03).

“The goal of Active Pass Sault Ste. Marie is to assist in promoting more recreation while encouraging less sedentary behaviours and excess screen time,” says Jen Amadio, community development and partnership coordinator, Sault Ste. Marie.

“Research suggests that many Grade 5 students drop out of recreational programming and enrolment numbers in various active programming decreases thereafter.”

Active Pass Sault Ste. Marie is a program organized in partnership with #activeSault and Healthy Kids Community Challenge to increase recreational activities for students entering Grade 5. The community is invited to learn about ways to help build a culture of healthy habits with children in this age group.

Participants in the open house will listen to a short presentation, followed by a round table discussion on how you or your organization can assist in bringing this initiative into action. For more information and to register for this free event please, RSVP here.
