ACTIVE 4 ALL 2016
On the 10th and 11th May dlr Sports Partnership teamed up with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Sports Office and dlr Leisure to organise Active 4 All, two days of activity taster sessions in Loughlinstown.
The focus of Active 4 All was on group activities and light exercise, promoting movement and an introduction to various exercises to improve and enhance a healthy lifestyle. Participants took part in Dance, Archery, Seated Exercises and Pickleball. Participants also got an opportunity to try out the Go for Life Games and maybe qualify to take part in the National Games in June.
An Cathaoirleach Cllr. Barry Saul attended the Wednesday session and spoke to the participants commenting “The focus of these events is on group sessions promoting movement and exercises to improve and enhance a healthy lifestyle.”
The Active 4 All events link into a weekly activity session run by dlr Leisure Services in three of the public leisure facilities, namely Meadowbrook, Loughlinstown and Monkstown. Every week, the participants come together in these centres to take part in physical activity in the gym, swimming pool, and outdoors when the weather permits, with the emphasis on FUN!
These events were supported by the HSE’s Health Promotion Unit and the Go For Life programme.
