Council has created a Get Active campaign in collaboration with Mackay Institute of Research and Innovation to get Mackay moving again.

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are significant health issues across the region but we can make a difference. Let's Shape Up and make bite sized changes to reduce obesity and type 2 diabetes in our region.

Not sure where to start? We’ve created five weeks of FREE activities for you to try in Biking, Adventure Sports, Water Sports, Personal Training and Walking/Running!

To enter, just take a selfie/video while getting active and upload it below. If you’re a social butterfly, you can post a photo/video to one of our Try the 5 Facebook events or just hashtag #trythe5 on Instagram.

Competition closes Sunday June 3, so get snapping!
