We need to act now as doing nothing is killing us.
Chronic disease is responsible for 90% of all deaths in Australia. If we act now, we can change this, together.
Exercise is a powerful medicine.
Exercise is proven effective in modifying 5 out of 6 leading risk factors for all chronic diseases, so if we took this medicine we could transform the health of Australians.
We need to create a movement.
More than 55% of Australians do not meet the minimal exercise guidelines and someone needs to help get them moving.
Delivering the message is key in rural Australia.
Vast travel distances, smaller populations and limited health and fitness infrastructure leaves rural Australia disadvantaged with less guidance, support and access to quality allied health care.
