MORE than 180 people joined in WimmeraHealth Care Group’s Move4Life annual fun run along the Wimmera River onSunday.

The event encouraged a focus on healthy living, as people walked or ran two, five or eight-kilometre tracks along the Wimmera River in Horsham.

Move4Life committee chairwoman Amelia Crafter said she wasblown away by the support.

“We had 80 people last year and we had 185 this year,” she said.

“We had more than a 100 per cent increase in numbers.”

Mrs Craftersaid she thought theinflux of participants was because of an increased awareness in health.

“It is a health promotion event, which is becoming more popular with people these days as there is more interest in our health,” she said.

“That’s what we want to see – people in the community being proactive about improving their health.

“It was also a nice sunny day and a beautiful Sunday morning, so there was no reason not to come along.”
