A Live 5-2-1-0 play box pilot was available at Westminster Pier Park in the summer of 2016. The box, filled with toys, balls and instructions for outdoor games to help kids be active, aims to help kids and families adopt healthy habits. Look for 3 boxes to show up around New Westminster in the Spring of 2017.

The Healthier Community Partnership Committee is working together to build healthy communities for children where the healthy choice is the easy choice!
