Sunshine Coast Heart Week 2016
With free bike rides, stand up paddle boarding, walking, cooking demonstrations, jumping castle and face painting, there’s something for everyone at the Sunshine Coast Heart Week 2016 Expo at council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre from 8am to noon on Saturday, April 30.
Community Services Director Coralie Nichols said council has partnered with the health and wellbeing sector to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle during Heart Week.
“The inaugural Sunshine Coast Heart Week 2016 Expo on April 30 kicks off a week-long program of events across the region,” she said.
“The community is invited to join ‘Happy Heart’ and the Heart Foundation Walkers at 8am for a leisurely walk around Lake Kawana.
“Residents and visitors can then head into Lake Kawana Community Centre and talk to health and well-being experts on a broad range of topics.
“There will be cooking demonstrations, educational resources and food ideas for healthy eating, a pump for healthy heart bike challenge, stand up paddle boarding, vascular health checks, group fitness classes, whip up a free smoothie on the pedal-powered Smoothie Bike, learn circus skills and so much more.”
