Word has it that Albert County’s successful support of Footloose! is making waves….Petitcodiac plans to adopt our program in their own community.
Also, in case you hadn’t already heard, N.B. Premier Shawn Graham also nominated Footloose! for the Tommy Douglas Award in Ottawa as an example of primary health care in Canada. If you remember, in 2004, Tommy Douglas was voted ‘The Greatest Canadian’ for his vision of Medicare and contributions to health care reform.
Don’t forget, the 2008 Footloose! launch is tonight at the Riverside-Albert Recreation Centre. We’re introducing more health challenges – and really cool prizes. This summer’s focus will be on families and weight management. The buzz has already started and rumour has it that all those who regretted not signing up last year will be the first in line for a membership this year. Read my previous post… for more on Footloose! for Life.
See you there!
