June is Recreation Month 2018 is over. Come back next year to find events near you!
Physical activity plays an important role in the health, well-being and quality of life of Canadians. People who are physically active live longer, healthier lives. Active people are more productive, and more likely to avoid illness and injury.
The Personnel Support Programs (PSP) Recreation Program plays a key role in developing military communities that are active and families that are supportive of CAF members’ fitness. PSP Recreation offers military families opportunities to be physically active together and participate in programs that meet their needs and interests.
“By reinforcing a more complete integration of families through recreation programming, there is a profound impact on the CAF’s operational capability,” says Dr. Michael Spivock, Senior Officer, Human Performance Research. “A family that is committed to physical activity will have a stronger influence on the individual CAF member’s lifestyle, choices and commitment to fitness training.”
June is Recreation Month is a great way to kick-off an active lifestyle change for you and your family, leading to healthier and more enjoyable lives for all!
