From the Office of Gerard Mansour – Commissioner for Senior Victorians Ambassador for Elder Abuse Prevention

Now in its eleventh year, Premier’s Active April continues to help Victorians join in the fun of increased physical activity.

“I write to invite you to join me in participating in Active April this year.

As you know, one of the most important things we can do as we age is being as healthy as possible. Anything we can do to make this fun and easy is great in my book.

The Premier’s Active April encourages all Victorians to do 30 minutes of physical activity a day during April. It’s free, fun and part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to getting more people moving. If you sign up you’ll get access online to free fitness support, discounts, and special offers. There are some great prizes to be won.

Many of you already participate in things that keep you active and feeling healthier. And the types of things you can log once you have registered are many and varied. Gardening, walking, lawn bowls and more.

There are four ways you can get involved:

  1.        Join up with me by creating a team for your individual U3A group.
    Let’s have a bit of healthy competition among U3As. If you create a team, I suggest you add “U3A” to your team name so we can let you know how your team went throughout April. and click ’Register Today’.
  2.        Promote Active April among your peers, friends, and families.
    Take your pick of the resources you can download and print out here.
  3.        Add your activities or events that are open others to the Active April website. Just click ‘Add Event’ on the ‘My Local’ tab.
  4.        Share your Active April videos, photos and comments with me on Facebook at @SeniorVicCommissioner.
    Use the hashtags #ActiveApril and #GetActivewiththeCommish.

I’ll be posting on my social media page about my Active April experiences, and I look forward to working with you to support Active April this year!

Yours sincerely,

Gerard Mansour”
