Go4Fun is a family based program, with benefits for everyone involved. The parent/carer and child set healthy lifestyles targets throughout the program that benefit the whole family.
Two case studies from South West Sydney Local Health District:
Tara loved coming to Go4Fun and really enjoyed the outdoor games sessions with Simone the Go4Fun leader. She made lots of friends and grew in confidence, not only at the program but in school as well.
Along with her Mum, Carol, Tara joined another healthy eating program to get ongoing support and healthy cooking ideas.
Tara, her parents and brother have all started personal training as a family – something they wouldn’t have thought about before the program. The Go4Fun program has changed their lives for the better.
William and his son Jonathon really enjoyed making friends and spending time with Go4Fun buddies. They both learned lots of things about healthy food.
Jonathon loves to cook with his dad and they aim to spend more time together to be as active as possible. Jonathon thought the best things about Go4Fun were learning to recognise healthy foods and being more active and fit!
Go4Fun has helped their whole family change to more healthy eating habits.
