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.
Term 3 is almost here and do you know what that means? It's time to rug up and get ready to walk to school.

Share with us any ideas or photos from your school's Winter Walk to School Week.
Recently Healthier Work and the Physical Activity Foundation held the Whole of Canberra Workplace Challenge during April and June, where teams increased their physical activity around the workplace through healthy competition with other businesses around the ACT. The Challenge saw 2,364 participants in 222 teams from workplaces around the ACT. Those participating in the Challenge saw that just a few simple exercises a day can have a huge impact on their overall physical activity within the workplace.
Congratulations to Drop and Give Me 20 from ACT Community Services for winning the latest challenge! Your team leader will be contacted soon.

It's great to see the participants of the Whole of Canberra Workplace Challenge getting out and moving during their work days! Kudos to these members of the ICRC who braved the cold to go on a lunch time stroll!
