Healthy Cities Illawarra (HCI) in partnership with Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre (BNC) are hosting a free community walking event called Bellambi 5 x 5.
Bellambi 5 x 5 is a free, all-inclusive, non-competitive regular community walk whereby participants walk a 5km (or a comfortable distance) every Tuesday during May at 3:30pm. The course will start and finish at BNC and will utilise the walking paths along the beach. Bellambi 5 x 5 aims to encourage ongoing healthy habits and inspire community connectedness.
Participants are asked to arrive at BNC from 3:15pm each week to sign in and embrace the opportunities to connect with the Bellambi community over a healthy snack and spin of the prize wheel as well as the option to have your blood pressure and sugar tested by Bellambi Drive Thru Pharmacy – all before the walk begins at 3:30pm. Water stations will be provided along the walk. Proudly supported by Illawarra Shoalhaven Social Investments.
Have a spin of the prize wheel to win coffee vouchers from Olive’s Café, water bottles, sunscreen, lip balm etc. Walk with us for all 5 weeks and be in the draw to win Bunnings gift cards, Northern Star Swimming classes, Foodworks vouchers and more!
Get together with your community over an afternoon walk in Bellambi for the 5 Tuesday’s in May starting on Tuesday 1st May. If you feel inspired to continue walking each week – start or join an ongoing walking group with the support of Grand Pacific Health and Heart Foundation Walking!
