Submitted article–An outdoor green gym will be built in Old Massett. It’s similar to an indoor gym with friendly, fun equipment for the whole family. It looks and feels like a kids’ park and it will give you a good workout. The five pieces of equipment will include cross trainers and strength trainers. Green gyms started in China before the Olympics and more people are physically active as a result. There is already one at the Civic Centre in Prince Rupert where a few Massett folks tried it and got a good workout and had fun while doing it!We received a generous grant from the Gwaii Trust Society and the Northern Savings Credit Union and we had a Cape-Fife hike-a-thon to raise funds. There will be a Loonie Auction at Sandy’s Styling and the Haida Rose to be drawn on October 31. Donations needed! For more information talk to Lucy at the Haida Rose or Patricia at OMVC.
