'Creating a hearty and vibrant community is the aim of our Active & Healthy Program. For more than 10 years this great initiative has offered activities that are fun, low-cost and convenient. Last year, the 150 weekly Active & Healthy sessions attracted around 120,000 attendances. I reckon that's a great result!' says Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate.
