The South Canterbury District Health Board has for a number of years been the principal sponsor of the Hadlow to Harbour fun walk, jog, run event. In supporting this Rotary event, the SCDHB Board and senior management see physical activity both reducing the risk of a range of health conditions for the population of South Canterbury and also helping those with health conditions to manage them.
As this is a recreational event for the serious runner to families just out for an active morning it caters for a diverse range of the South Canterbury population. The SCDHB wishes to promote that even small increases in physical activity can produce measurable health benefits and with an age range of participants from 4 year olds to 80 year olds it’s never too early or late to start.
