During February, our walking group supported the Heart Foundation, along with a red shirt day which raised a total of $52. All proceeds go towards helping fight against heart disease, which is the number one killer of Australians.
This month, we have decided to support a local charity in the Coffs and Clarence Valley area, CanDo Cancer Trust, where one of our amazing Exercise Physiologist's is located. Along with the walking group donations, Mat will also be participating in the Grafton charity swim on March 30.
The Coffs Coast & Clarence CanDo Cancer Trust supports patients and families attending the North Coast Cancer Institute. In an effort to ensure funds remain in the local area and help those most in need, the CanDo Cancer Trust Committee, along with the generous support of the Coffs Coast Freemasons, established the Trust to distribute funds to patients and families affected by cancer.
Currently, most funds raised for cancer sufferers do not stay locally in the Coffs Harbour region. CanDo Cancer Trust provide direct financial assistance to North Coast Cancer Institute (NCCI) patients and their families.
If you would like to join our walking group, contact reception on 46 383 777.

An Insight into our MPA PROGRAM!
We are half way through the term and our Modified Physical Activity Program is in full swing! It is clinically proven that children who participate in a structured exercise program:
-Enhance muscular capacities, motor skills & behaviour
-Improve reaction time and accuracy
-Enhance aerobic & anaerobic capacity, agility, muscle strength, self-competence, gross motor function & health-related quality of life
-Have heightened executive function and cognition.
Our MPA Program is designed to focus on the development of fine motor and gross motor skills, coordination, cardiovascular fitness, core strength and balance. Delivered in a small group environment, this program provides a movement opportunity for those who find it difficult to participate in structured sport or activity with their peers.
The MPA program runs during each school term on Tuesday afternoons at 3:45pm. We are also currently taking expressions of interest for a second session day and time. For further information contact our reception team on 46 383 777. ... See MoreSee Less

ARTICLE OF THE WEEK!!
This week’s article is titled: Balance Improvement After Physical Therapy Training Using Specially Developed Serious Games for Cerebral Palsy Children: Preliminary Results
Cerebral Palsy is a neurological condition most commonly diagnosed in children. Movement patterning and gait can be effected as a result of muscle spasticity and muscle weakness. This article looks at the benefit of adapting traditionally prescribed exercises into a gamed based activity. It focuses on developing video games suitable for a disabled population and reports on its effect on adherence to exercise and balance outcomes.
