Shire gets Heart Foundation award

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

Sir – Central Desert Shire Council has been recognised for its contribution to tackling heart disease at the 2013 Heart Foundation Healthy Community.

 

The council received a Rising  Heart Encouragement Award in the Healthy Community Awards populations of 15,000 or less category.  This is the third year in a row that the Council has been recognised in this way.

 

This shows that the Council has a long term commitment to improving the health of our Communities.  Activities such as the CDSDC Women’s Softball Competition are great ways of involving women in sport and promoting fun, healthy activities and I am very proud of the Council’s achievements.

 

The awards are important because they recognise the outstanding achievements of local governments in the continuing fight against heart disease – the number one killer of Australian men and women.

 

Now in their 20th year, the awards were established to recognise initiatives from local governments that have contributed to improving heart health in Australian communities.

 

Adrian Dixon

Shire President
