The City of Leduc is committed to providing its residents with opportunities and services that promote a rewarding and fulfilling lifestyle. The community continues to create new initiatives, programs and facilities to give residents ample choice when it comes to living large in a smaller city.
Healthy Hearts Leduc encourages kids to lead active, healthy lifestyles through wellness assessments, education initiatives, activities, and special events provided at the Leduc Recreation Centre. Sign up for the Online Activity Tracker at www.healthyheartsleduc.ca to monitor and track activity levels. Members can then view the activity level of the community as a whole and track their personal progress. It’s a great initiative that aims to keep kids involved in health-focused activities throughout their elementary, junior high and high school years.
