Seven community groups have been awarded legacy grants through Northern Health.

Northern Health announced Friday 42 community partners across the northern interior to be awarded the 2014 IMAGINE: Legacy Grants.

From the 42, the Gold Pan was selected for seven, they are:

• Bouchie Lake and Parkland Recreation Commissions – Winter Daze Garden Project – Phase One (Population Health);

• Cariboo Ski Touring Club – Youth Nordic Ski Camp (Population Health);

• City of Quesnel – Seniors’ Health Screening (Cardiac and Cerebrovascular Services/HEAL for Your Heart);

• Kids Kare Center – Snowshoe Away the Winter Blues (Population Health)

• Parent Child Resources Team – Quesnel Accessible Playground (Population Health);

• Quesnel Complete Health Improvement Program – Complete Health Improvement Program (Cardiac and Cerebrovascular Services/HEAL for Your Heart); and

• Quesnel and District Child Development Centre and Quesnel Baby Friendly Initiative – Building Breastfeeding Capacity and Support in Quesnel (Population Health).

Northern Health said with the 2015 Canada Winter Games approaching (Feb. 13 – March 1) the focus was on creating excitement across the north to help improve the health and well-being of those “living, working, learning and playing in their respective communities.”

“The upcoming 2015 Canada Winter Games will provide a chance to cheer on athletes as well as to be inspired to live more active and healthier lifestyles,” Health Minister Terry Lake said.

“The Legacy Grants reflect a commitment to supporting the long term health of British Columbians and will help communities build on the spirit of the games as they work to achieve the goal of healthy populations.”

The grants are designed to foster a “sustainable legacy” for community-based projects through a variety of partnerships.
