Swap your way to family fun this weekend

Scotty and Sal from radio station 96Five will pull out all stops and swap their way to better health when they broadcast live from the Swap It Family Fun Day in Southbank this Saturday.

The radio duo will host the fun day at the Southbank Institute of Technology from 10am – 2pm, joined by Swap It Ambassador and Olympian Duncan Armstrong and rising country music stars – Dozzi.

Over the past month, drive presenter Scotty from 96Five has swapped his way to better health both on and off-air.

Thanks to the Swap It, Don’t Stop It campaign, led by Queensland’s peak diabetes, heart, nutrition and cancer bodies – Scotty has learnt how small, daily physical activity and nutrition swaps can make a big difference to his health and wellbeing.

The live broadcast will bring the 96Five Swap It campaign to a close, featuring tips on how to have fun with food while keeping health on the menu, and how to incorporate more physical activity into your day.

Duncan Armstrong says the event will help Brisbane families take some important steps toward a healthier life.

“One of the best things about the Swap It campaign is that you can lose your belly without losing all the things you love. Small changes add up to a big difference,” Duncan said.

“Come on, Brisbane – round up your friends and family and get down to the fun day on October 13 to swap your way to better health!”

The 96Five and Swap It Family Fun Day will feature a jumping castle, coffee van, and a family oriented AFL9’s game, plus your chance to meet Romeo the Radio dog and Eric the Swap It Don’t Stop It character.

Bring the family along and learn about swapping big for small, often for sometimes, sitting for moving and watching for playing – all toward better health.
