January 18 2016- March 17, the Kamloops John Tod Community Centre is offering a program called MEND - Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do it! 

MEND is a fun, FREE 10 week program for families with 7-13 year olds. The program supports families to live a healthy lifestyle. Groups of up to 15 children, accompanied by at least one parent or caregiver meet with program leaders twice a week for ten weeks. The first hour is an interactive family session on nutrition and behaviour topics, followed by one hour of fun exercise for the children, while parents and caregivers meet for support and discussion on topics such as goals and rewards, label reading and problem solving.

The first class will take place Monday January 18, and will be every Monday and Thursday from 6pm to 8pm. 

Participating families will receive a FREE 3 month pass to the Kamloops YMCA!
