This year, your Health & Wellness Committee worked hard to bring to you a series of events fun for the whole family. The month started off with a retro 80s themed pop-up roller rink, where residents were able to grab a pair of skates (old school style!) and get out onto the rink floor (costumes optional!) to enjoy a classic throwback. Following after was a busy day at the Vancouver Art Gallery, as their exhibition drew to a close and residents were invited to attend a tour while kids were led off for their own fun activities. A hands-on workshop on movement and lines followed for those with an interest in the arts!
Finishing off the month was the Whitecaps vs. Toronto FC game. Residents were led out unto the field before the game to help hoist the flag before sitting back in their section and enjoying the game! It was a fun night all around and drew quite the crowd of residents (see photos below).
Lastly, running all month long, was our annual Happy Place contest. This year drew the largest amount of entrees yet! Two prizes were up for grabs: two tickets to the sold-out Whitecaps game, and a giftcard to MEC. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit to us their happy place and what makes it happy—if you’d like to see all the entries—from beautiful BC scenery to adorable pet companions—be sure to visit our Instagram.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Wellness Month. We are already busy making plans for next year’s!
