Physical Activity Foundation

This is the home base of the Physical Activity Foundation, an Australian health promotion charity with the goal of reducing the impact of sedentary lifestyle diseases in children by teaching them healthy lifestyle habits through the delivery of large scale school and community based intervention programs. Here we share all our experiences about the hosting of our suite of programs - the Active Kids Challenge, the MOVE IT MOVChallenge profiling the product MOVband, Ride or Walk to School program and the Fruit and Vege pledge.

What an awesome morning celebrating National Walk Safely to School Day with the St Thomas the Apostle Primary School students!

We were lucky enough to share the day with Joy Burch MLA and Chris Steel MLA who presented the school with a set of Active Travel Maps provided by Transport Canberra to encourage riding or walking to School!

There were a few special guests in Brumby Jack and Constable Kenny Koala. The students loved finishing their walk with the fresh fruit provided by Fyshwick Fresh Food Market

We hope everyone enjoyed walking safely to school this morning!
