PHOTOS: Nelson gets fit on World Health Day

It snowed like a mid-winter day, but that didn’t stop Nelson from getting fit Saturday for World Health Day.

Outdoor and indoor activities were held throughout the city including a 10,000-step walk, dance classes and free squash down at the Nelson Squash Club.

The events were co-sponsored by Community First Health Co-Op and the Nelson Star. Scroll down for more photos of the day.
