Lac La Biche County residents have shown that they are willing to adapt and make sacrifices for the good of the place that they call home.

ADVISE

Since it opened in 2011, the Bold Center has been a hub for community events, festivals, drop-in leagues, fitness, and other programs that give everyone the chance to get healthy and participate in community life. It has also been home for our local Family & Community Support Services, which offer activities and services that make young families more resilient. The Bold Center was a fantastic investment in our community’s future, and I look forward to seeing how it will continue to improve the well-being of Lac La Biche County in the years to come.

Jim Skladan was one of the first people to fill his Prescription to Get Active at the Bold Center — and he used it more than 40 times in two months. How did you find out about the Prescription to Get Active program? “I went for a physical and the doctor recommended that I lose some weight. I told him ‘I guess I’ll go to the Bold Center.’ He said ‘I’ve got just the thing for you’ and gave me the prescription.” What’s your favourite form of exercise that you can access with your prescription? “Walking, of course. I’ve had some knee problems that needed surgery to fix in the last few years, but now one of my goals is to walk seven kilometres in an hour.” What have been some of the program’s benefits? “I was able to lose 10 pounds in two months, and my goal is to lose 20 pounds in a year. This has me thinking that maybe I’ll go with a push lawnmower for my lot instead of buying a new ride-on mower.” Have your goals and outlook changed when it comes to physical activity? “They definitely have. I thought I wouldn’t like being this active. I used to think that people who went for walks needed a hobby or something else to do. Now I find it kind of fun and I don’t mind it at all.” What are your overall impressions of the program and the Bold Center? “The staff at the Bold Center are amazing. Everyone is friendly, and my wife felt the same way when she came here.”

The mandate of FCSS is to provide locally-driven, preventative social initiatives that enhance the well-being of individuals, families and the community.
