If you are looking for a fun and healthy activity for the family there is a special event coming up. A health and wellness day takes place on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Kapuskasing Nordic Ski club from 10 am to 3 pm. Kaylee Wedge, Project coordinator with the Kapuskasing, Hearst and Smooth Rock Falls counselling services, says it’s a great opportunity for everyone to get active this time of the year.
“We definitely need to focus on our physical activities this time of the year,” Wedge said. “I find just giving them a reminder of how beneficial it is to move, makes them happy and helps to improve the humour and how they feel.”
Wedge says the day features a number of activities including snowshoeing and skiing.
“We are offering free rentals for snowshoes and cross country skis that day,” she said. “There is going to be a scavenger hunt to encourage people to go out and use the trails. Prizes will be given to the winners of the Scavenger Hunt.”
You can bring the family down and visit the information booths and enjoy free hot chocolate and chili.
