VON Guelph Wellington News:
From Kelly Gee
Over the month of February VON SMART Exercise Program has worked with Safe Communities Falls Prevention Action Group to promote a Valentine’s Campaign; Love Can Steal Your Heart but a Fall Can Steal Your Independence”
We were featured on the Radio and the local newspapers promoting benefits of exercise in terms of falls prevention but, also in terms of injury prevention if a fall does happen.
To promote our “Love Can Steal Your Heart by a Fall Can Steal Your Independence” we handed out valentines baggies filled with salt and sand to all SMART exercise participants in North and Centre Wellington. We have encouraged the recipients of these sand and salt valentines to keep them in their car or purse so that they can use on walkways, driveways or parking lots are slippery due to ice.
The SMART Integrated Falls Prevention Program will take place until February 15th at the following locations:
Duffs Church , Guelph
Wellington Park Terrace, Guelph
VON GEF Meeting
Tuesday April 7th at 12pm – Guelph Office, 401 Edinburgh Rd. N., Guelph
Wed April 8th at 1:30 – Mount Forest Office, 392 Main St. N., Mount Forest
