The Prescription to Get Active program has launched a fundraising campaign to help scale the program to more Canadians.
With inactivity being a higher risk factor for premature death than smoking, obesity, diabetes and hypertension, it is also costing our healthcare system $10b annually. The Prescription to Get Active program is looking to change this by giving healthcare providers the ability to prescribe activity, and patients redeeming those prescriptions limited free access at a fitness or recreation centre in their area to get started.
We are looking to expand the program to more areas in Canada and need your help putting the people and funds in place to do that. Please visit our GoFundMe and support us by donating and/or sharing it with other Canadians: https://www.gofundme.com/prescription-to-get-active-npc.”
