Tangata Atumotu Trust have organised a fun activity every day from Monday 9th November to Tuesday 1st December - with help from their friends at the Ministry of Pacific Peoples, Christchurch City Council and the Diabetes Centre.
It’s all about encouraging our Pasifika community to come together to move together – whatever ability, age or flavour. Activities include Outdoor Jungle Gym, dancing, Zumba, waka ama, yoga and walking.
They are giving away prizes, including mini group passes to Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa. Also all those who tick off five classes over the month will go in the draw to win some great prizes - thanks to the CCC. Winners will be drawn in the celebration class on Tuesday 1st December.
