Plunge into feeling wonderful! Take the Healthy Pledge today!


Co-Health will be giving away 5000 healthy checklist fridge magnets with free magnet whiteboard markers. To get your free checklist, sign a pledge that you will put it on your fridge and see how much it motivates you. You agree for a member of the Co-Health team to contact you just once in the next 12 months to see how you are going. Scientific research has shown that people who publicly pledge to change behaviour for the better are far more likely to keep it up. It is entirely your choice how many of the healthy actions you want to take up. All actions on the list are based on sound evidence and national guidelines for nutrition and physical activity.

The checklists are available at all City of Cockburn Libraries, Cockburn Super Clinic Parmacy , 11 Wentworth Parade, Success, and other participating businesses plus various community events around the City.
