About Go GERO!
The City of Greater Geraldton was successful in winning a Phase 2 Healthy Communities Initiative grant from the Federal Government to promote healthy eating and being active throughout the region. This success has brought about the exciting realty of activating the CGG Physical Activity and Nutrition plan along with other well researched health initiatives that reflect the needs of the region in the Go GERO! Getting Active and Eating Well Made Easy Project.
Our area has so much to offer, and we want to see this grow further. The Go GERO! project is designed to encourage the Geraldton community to enjoy being active and having access to affordable nutritious food every day. The program is aimed at adults and will offer a whole range of free or low cost exercise and healthy eating options to Geraldton residents.
To do this we are rolling out a number of physical activity and healthy eating programs, including:
- Heart Foundation Walking groups
- Heartmoves classes
- AustCycle classes and groups
- Community gardens
- A fruit & vegetable van
- Healthy communities grants; and
- A community bike repair service
We are also looking for passionate individuals to become:
- Go GERO! Champions,
- AustCycle trainers,
- Heartmoves trainers; and
- Heart Foundation volunteer walk organisers
To find out more about this exciting program and how you can get involved, visit the Go GERO! website and sign up for the newsletter for the latest updates.
The Heart Foundation together with the Go GERO! project are looking for Heartmoves trainers. Heartmoves is a low to moderate intensity exercise program specifically designed to cater for people with lifestyle risk factors or with existing stable chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and arthritis.
