Get Out Get Active

2014 04 23 andrew pcnAndrew and the team at Mix and Integrity Land prepare for walk ahead with Raina from AHPCN.

Get out and get active with Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network (PCN).

The PCN has just rolled out a new program in Fort Saskatchewan that encourages residents and the business community to lead and live a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy is just one part of living the lifestyle, but so is an ample amount of exercise on a day to day basis.

Exercise is the most underutilized anti depressant on the planet. The right amount can make you feel good about yourself, help you loose or maintain body weight, improve blood circulation and most importantly give you energy and boost self esteem. It is no secret that many Canadians (myself included) do not get enough exercise in our daily lives.

On Tuesday, April 23rd Mix 107 took one small step for the station and one huge step toward fitness. We joined Raina (PCN) for a brief walk amounting to several blocks and approximately 15 minutes. It was fun joining staff from the Mix team and our friends from Integrity Land as we got out and got active for a little exercise. This walk was invigorating and good for the body, mind and soul. A little walk every day can make you feel better in every way.

You too can join the Alberta Heartland Primary Network with there Get Out Get Active initiative by signing up and joining in on the walks. The goal is to accumulate enough walking km's to reach Jasper.

Here is the website for signing up.


Check out a gallery of pictures and a video below of our participation.



Heres the video (Look how fast we walk at the start..LOL)

Our Wednesday featured blog is about the Importance of Local Radio and how the focus of Local is on community.

MIX 107 supports community events, whether it's fundraisers or just keeping you informed on what's happening in the community.

Simone Villetard is the Band Teacher at Fort Saskatchewan High School.  She shared her thoughts on how MIX 107 has impacted her school and band program.



Villetard and her students recently returned from a band trip in Germany and Austria.  MIX 107 was part of the fundraising night before the trip occurred to help raise money for the students.  You can find that story here complete with video and a picture gallery.

Will you be the next Morning Co-Host?

The next time you head to a community fundraiser, you may find an opportunity to bid on a Mix 107.9 Morning Co-host Certificate.

Darrel Jones was our latest co-host when he won the certificate at the Music for Hope event in March.  This was the first time Darrel was ever on the radio and he was fantastic.  Plus with his bid, he supported a great cause to give back to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

Sometimes you'll find the certificate as a silent auction item and sometimes it'll go to live auction.  Either way, your winning bid supports the fundraiser event and you'll have a fun experience.

Thank You to Darrel for a Fun hour and I look forward to meeting and having you as my next Morning Co-host.
