Municipality joins in for the first time

City of Pointe-Claire rises to the Health Challenge

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is happy to announce that the City of Pointe-Claire will participate in the Health Challenge from March 31 to May 11, 2016. Many activities will be open to all throughout this event.

The challenge will begin with an outdoor cardio session on Sunday, March 20, in the parking lot adjacent to Terra-Cotta Park. Residents who register for the Health Challenge can reserve their spot to participate in this free activity. On stage, energetic and inspiring trainers will make sure that everyone can join in and have fun as they lead exercise series involving three different levels of intensity.

“We hope a great many residents will sign up for this six-week event,” says Mayor Trudeau. “You can meet the challenge by doing very simple things.”

Over a six-week period, participants are invited to take simple steps to meet three goals: eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day, be physically active for at least 30 minutes a day for adults or 60 minutes for children and teenagers, and achieve balance by taking at least one break every day.

Many free activities, such as outdoor cardio sessions and public skating, will be open to all who have registered for the Health Challenge.

The Health Challenge will come to a satisfying conclusion with the Mayor’s Walk on Saturday, May 7. All are invited to join in the 1.75 kilometre walk starting from the parking lot of Saint-Joachim church in Pointe-Claire Village.

“Whether as a family, on your own, as part of team or with friends, why not register now?” says the mayor.
