Getting a move on has never been so affordable, as the Penticton Community Centre celebrates Move For Health Day with discounted rates.

Move for Health Day, set for Saturday, May 10, is an international event started 12 years ago by the World Health Organization to promote physical activity. The B.C. Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA), with support from Healthy Families B.C., leads the province in promoting the global event and the benefits of healthy active living.

Move for Health Day events bring people together in a spirit of fun and inclusiveness, as well as supporting healthy active living.

The Penticton Community Centre is supporting this day with $2 admissions to the pool, Fitness Room and drop-in sports, including pickleball, badminton and basketball. Parents can also bring their children to Gymboree for $2.

Meanwhile, the Town of Oliver will offer free games and activities for kids five to 12 years old at Community Park or inside the arena if it’s raining.

Adults will be offered a series of free classes throughout the day, including Zumba and pickeball, inside the arena. For more information call 250-498-4985.
