Physical literacy will be the focus in the Fort next month.
On Tuesday (Jan.23), the City of Fort Saskatchewan, Fort Saskatchewan Public Library and the Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society teamed up to proclaim February 2018 as Physical Literacy Month.
"It's an exciting day. I'm just elated that the city is in support of this initiative," said Michele Feser, library director.
Physical literacy helps build competence and confidence in a variety of activities, benefitting human development.
Throughout the month, people will be able to pick up 'passports' at the library, Dow Centennial Centre (DCC) or Families First Society and complete five physical exercises. Once they're done, locals can submit their document to win a prize.
"We really look forward to having some fun and also bringing Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod to the library so that they can inspire us to stay fit and be physically active," added Feser.
The fitness gurus will be at the library on Feb.2.
Prizes up for grabs include six month memberships to Goodlife Fitness and year-long memberships to the DCC and Harbour Pool.
