NSW Health, NSWRL tackling obesity

As part of the NSWRL and NSW Health's incredible initiative, Aboriginal communities are seeing amazing results after another successful Knockout Health Challenge.

The annual Knockout Challenge is a joint initiative of NSW Health and NSW Rugby League, which invites Aboriginal communities to participate in a fun and effective program to lose weight.

Winners of the George Rose Challenge gathered at Rugby League Central yesterday for a presentation featuring Minister Pru Goward, NSWRL CEO David Trodden and NSW Blues coach Laurie Daley – and it’s clear the impact the campaign is having on Indigenous individuals and communities throughout NSW.

Congratulations to the top-three finishers in the 2015 George Rose Challenge – the “Eurobodalla Scale Busters”, “Healthy Black and Deadly” and “Dead or Deadly”, who were all handed their well-earned cheque’s by Daley.

Teams of at least 20 participants can enter the George Rose or Julie Young Challenges, setting their own exercise program targets and milestones with the aim of reducing their average team weight loss. 

Anyone can join the Get Healthy Service by calling 1300 806 258 or visitingwww.gethealthynsw.com.au to register online. For more information on the Aboriginal Knockout Health Challenge go to: www.facebook.com/nswknockoutchallenge.
