Turanga Health is hitting the great outdoors with it’s rohe-wide physical activity and health programme Tū Pakari.
For the city-based sessions the Tūranga Health team has devised activities that can be done at stunning locations around town.
“We love getting out there but if it's raining we just do the session at the Tūranga Health gym,” says physical activity kaiawhina Shane Luke.
Town-based session locations include Titirangi Kaiti Hill, Waiweherua (the meeting of the three rivers), Elgin’s Blackpool Park, and Oneroa (Midway Beach).
And since the sessions are suitable for all, Luke hopes whānau will bring their young ones along for the ride.
Tū Pakari sessions in rural areas continue 6pm on Tuesdays at Patutahi Hall (with Bernie Semau), Muriwai Marae (with Daiminn Kemp) and Mangatu Marae (with Luke Bradley); Wednesdays (Te Karaka Sports Ground with Hotorene Brown); and Thursdays (Patutahi Hall with Daiminn Kemp).
Turanga Health service delivery manager Dwayne Tamatea says it's great to whanau getting out and about to exercise .
“We were stoked to see the numbers of people at the Te Karaka and Muriwai sessions increasing earlier this year, and we’re hoping everyone returns and brings a friend or whānau member for the summer sessions.”
