The Vision of Active Launceston is to improve the health and wellbeing of the Launceston Community through physical activity.
Heart Foundation Walking is a network of free community-based walking groups with volunteer Walk Organisers who lead groups in your local area.
The Heart Foundation is taking steps to support Australians to lead active, healthy lives by encouraging them to join or start Heart Foundation Walking groups which are fun and a great way to meet new people.
Walking for at least 30 minutes a day provides a range of heart health benefits including maintaining healthy weight, increased fitness and strength, improved self-esteem and mental health.
Members receive some great benefits including special offers, regular newsletters, incentives and prizes to help keep walkers motivated.
To find out where your nearest group is, or how you can start a new group as a volunteer Walk Organiser, visit http://walking.heartfoundation.org.au/walking/find-walk/ or call 1300 36 27 87.
