Healthy kids say ‘Thanks Mate’!
LIVERPOOL youngsters have been
honoured for helping to build a healthier future for their mates!
A special event at Wavertree Sports Centre on Saturday, 4 July 2009
had city’s 60 ‘Health Mates’ attended. All of
them thanked for their work with
more than 300 young people across the city over the past year.
The young people, aged 13 to 19, have been recruited to in a bid to
cut obesity in Liverpool and provide advice and guidance to young
people who are overweight. They promote healthy eating and help
youngsters get involved in activities that burn calories such as
cooking, dancing, sport, and exercise.
Around 200 guests took part at the special event in Wavertree. As
well as giving everyone the chance to thank the Health Mates for
their hard work, the event also give people a taste of different
cultures from around the world. Wavertree Sports Park was
awash with colour, sound and activity as young people take part in a
range of sports including football, tennis, badminton, basketball,
netball, and even a rodeo bull. There was also singing,
drumming and fashion workshops and a range of therapeutic
activities, including reiki, indian head massage, aromatherapy, and
Young people had the chance to get active with aerobics, yoga, pilates and

Spain was also be on offer. And there was a stage featuring
performances from young singers, dancers and comedians. The
special event, with the theme of ‘Healthy mind, body and soul’

Before the event took place city council’s executive member for education, Councillor Keith
Turner, told us that:- "Our Health Mates scheme is proving to be a
huge success. Youngsters are often far more influenced by their
peers than anyone else, and older teenagers are able to inspire them
in a really positive way.
Today's children are tomorrow's adults and it’s vital we do all we
can to give them the best possible start in order to prevent them
facing health problems in later life. Teaching youngsters the
importance of eating healthily and getting fit helps them develop
habits that last a lifetime.
Health Mates is playing a major part in breaking couch potato habits
and tackling child obesity, by finding innovative ways of getting
youngsters out of the house and involved in physical activity. This
action-packed event is the perfect way to thank our heroic Health
Mates for the wonderful work they are doing.”
Liverpool’s Health Mates, including young people with disabilities,
serve over 300 people aged eight to 13 at schools, community centres
and youth groups across the city. The project, launched in
2006, is part of a massive drive to improve the health and well
being of youngsters, and make sure every young person is taking part
in at least two hours of exercise each week.
Liverpool has also become the 1st city in the UK to provide under
5’s with free membership to fitness centres. The pioneering move,
part of the ‘Futures’ scheme, means all children aged
up to 16 year olds in Liverpool
now have a free annual membership for the city’s lifestyles centres...
