World Health Day is celebrating its 70th anniversary on April 7, 2018. In recognition, the SEIU-West Political Action and Awareness Committee (PAAC) encourages members to get active on World Health Day and enter their Contest!
- Take your kids to the playground and join them on the swings!
- Take a stroll along a river or lake!
- Play a game of 21 in basketball!
These are just some of the ways the SEIU-West PAAC encourages you to participate in their World Health Day Contest!
All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell the SEIU-West PAAC about a healthy activity you participated in on World Health Day to be entered to win a new Fitbit! We ask that you enter the contest by April 10, 2018.
All participants in the contest will also be eligible to win an item of SEIU-West swag (1 item provided to each work site – for a draw among participants) at your workplace.
The PAAC would also like to acknowledge the theme for this year’s World Health Day – #HealthForAll. The World Health Organization (WHO) chose this theme because they hope world leaders will keep their pledges when they made to advance #HealthForAll after agreeing to the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015.
As we know, universal health care is invaluable to the wellbeing of our communities, and to that end private health care has no place in Saskatchewan. We do not want to live in a community where the size of our wallet dictates our access to health care.
Spread the word and get active on World Health Day to promote public health!
