Winter Wellness events across BC
The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) recently announced funding for 168 Winter Wellness events across British Columbia to take place in January and February 2018. FNHA has invested $320 000 in community wellness events, with these events primarily organized by First Nations communities, for First Nations communities. The theme of this year’s winter wellness events is “togetherness”, as winter is a time of coming together and strengthening ties between families, friends and supporting each other. A variety of winter wellness events have been planned, include canning lessons, winter feasts, traditional hunting and harvesting, youth wellness camp gatherings, winter relay races and many more!
