Attadale Toy Library, Attadale Playgroup building, 1 Carroll Drive, Bicton

It’s World Breastfeeding Week! Join us for a celebration of your breastfeeding journey, whatever it looked like.

The international theme for WBW 2020 (1-7 August) is Support breastfeeding for a healthier planet. The focus is on the impact of infant feeding on the environment and the imperative to protect, promote and support breastfeeding for the health of the planet and its people. Breastmilk is a natural, renewable food that is produced and delivered to the consumer without pollution, packaging or waste. When we protect and support mothers and breastfeeding, we are also reducing the impact on our air, water and land, protecting our young ones and future generations.Breastfeeding is a sustainable way to feed our infants and young children and provides food security for them in emergencies and climate-related disasters.

Our meetings are a great opportunity to talk with other parents, especially those with older babies/kids who have been through it themselves.

XLR8 KIDS EVENT

Saturday, 30 August, 2pm to 4pm
XLR8 – Obstacle Course, 1633 Mandurah Road, Baldivis

The only outdoor army obstacle course in WA is fun, exciting and encouraging for all kids.

These awesome XLR8 Kids events are simply the best, they are always fun, active, exciting and encouraging for all kids from 5 (ish) to 14 years!!! Mud and water are all part of the amazing XLR8 event.
Apart from the 1KM & 2KM track you can now also choose the premium 3KM track!!!
Kids of all athletic abilities are encouraged to join in as there is no better way to connect with their own inner warrior and with their sporty friends and fellow friendly racers whilst they run, walk, crawl, climb and jump their way through a fun-filled obstacle course that helps them discover just how XLR8 strong they really are.
XLR8 Kids events provide a safe outdoor environment where having fun and getting dirty is mandatory!
It inspires the kids to have a go, trust their own abilities and challenges them to be fearless and confident!
XLR8 offers the choice between the 1KM, 2KM or the 3KM course.
XLR8 doesn’t put any restrictions on what track you can do based on age, it is your choice – it is mostly your child’s ability and will-power that determines which track they will complete. The only stipulation is that they are healthy and fit to do the course independently.
The brand new 3KM track is our premium challenge for those kids that are fit, resilient, in the older age group OR may have conquered the 2KM “easy-ish” before!
You can register 1 child or multiple kids from 5 years to 14 years old at the same time. Please register the children’s name, not your own so their certificate is in the correct name. We hope you can stay till all children have passed the finish line so your child can receive his or her own personalised certificate.
Note: PLEASE REGISTER YOUR CHILD (don’t register yourself)!!! That way the ticket is in your child’s name and we are able to prepare the certificates correctly.
For any questions please contact us via baldivisfitness@gmail.com
