Cork City Council Launches New Fitness Campaign To Help Keep Cork Moving
The ‘Keep Well, Move!’ programme will highlight safe outdoor activities and promote the city’s walkways and parks.
The Council also say they will be bringing Zumba, yoga, orienteering, soccer and cycling to schools and youth groups throughout the city.
‘Move!’ will also see the Council partnering with Munster Rugby and the Cork Community Gardaí for a Rugby on the Green programme in housing estates.
The programme follows the Soccer on The Green partnership of the Council and the Football Association of Ireland during the summer.
Launching the campaign with a visit to St Brendan’s Girls Primary School grounds for an outdoor Zumba session, Lord Mayor Cllr Joe Kavanagh said: “While weather may be a barrier to staying active this winter, our message is that it’s okay to go outside! We are surrounded by beautiful walkways and parks in the city and they are accessible throughout the winter months, perhaps with the help of a warm and waterproof coat!”
