Calgary Rotary Challenger Park – Our Role In Health & Wellness

In Canada, new statistics are showing that obesity is now the highest cause of preventable deaths, above smoking. It is obvious that all populations need to look a little more closely at their own health. “Every year, approximately 21,000 Canadians die as a result of physical inactivity”. This costs the health care system $2.5 – $4.6 billion PER YEAR. As the population ages, arthritic and other musculo-skeletal pain increase. Much of the population is now turning to painkillers. Last year in the U.S., 600,000 people died from the use or over use of ibuprofen. There are other non-invasive ways to keep populations healthy and decrease pain.

Research indicates that only a few persons with disabilities participate in recreation and leisure opportunities. This can lead to other secondary health and wellness complications which may impact the community at large.

  • Childhood obesity is on the rise. Over 1/3 of Canadian children ages 2 to 11 are overweight, of that 1/2 would be considered obese
  • Persons With Disabilities have few options when it comes to sport and recreation
  • Diabetes is on the rise
  • Secondary complications to diabetes is amputation, blindness, other physical disabilities
  • 59% of adults aged 18 and older are considered insufficiently active
  • 55% of Canadians are physically inactive
  • 60% of older Canadians are in active
  • Recreation and sport is a launching ground for other personal growth and development, communication skills, self esteem, cooperation, team work, self awareness and identity
  • People of other cultures need to access facilities that are desirable and sensitive to needs
  • Persons with disabilities participate less in recreation and sport than their able bodied peers
