Brush up on hockey skills in November

Brush up on hockey skills in November

The weekly Recreation Report from Grand Forks and District Recreation.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Statistics show that one in eight Canadian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Discovering how lifestyle choices affect cancers is important in personal prevention.

Eating certain foods or doing a specific exercise unfortunately doesn’t prevent cancer. However, eating well, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight does decrease personal risk.

Dietitian Sarah Densmore offers her services every month by providing a free Blood Pressure, dietary and healthy living clinic in the lobby of the Aquatic Centre. Take advantage of her knowledge and services Monday, Oct. 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 9 a.m.to 10:30 a.m.. Sarah can help to identify ways of improving lifestyle choices toward cancer prevention.

Now that all your little hockey players are back on the ice and into the fall routine, Kevin Horne would like to invite you and your child to a six-week conditioning and hockey skills program.
