GO4FUN was previously open only to families with children who met eligibility criteria, however the program has been expanded so that all families can now enrol.

 

Run by trained health and community professionals, Go4Fun is a fun way for families to spend quality time together while learning fun ways to create healthy habits for life.

 

Throughout next term, Go4Fun will run for 10 weeks at The Entrance Community Centre every Wednesday evening from 1 May and at Gosford Olympic Pool (indoor, heated) every Thursday evening from 2 May.

 

A culturally adapted version of the program run by Bungree Aboriginal Association and available for all families will take place at Lake Haven Recreation Centre every Tuesday evening from 30 April.

 

Families unable to attend the face-to-face programs can register for Go4Fun Online to view weekly online sessions and receive personalised phone support from a Go4Fun coach at times convenient for them.

 

Go4Fun is a NSW Health state-wide initiative offered on the Central Coast by the Local Health District’s Health Promotion Service. Health promotion officer Michele Munday welcomed the program’s expansion.

 

“It’s really exciting to now be able to offer Go4Fun to all families with children aged seven to 13,” Michele said.

 

“The program is packed with fun and engaging games and activities that help children build self-esteem, make new friends and create healthy habits.

 

“We’re getting some fabulous feedback from families who participate, so we’re really looking forward to opening our doors to more families on the Central Coast so they can benefit too.”
