Hounds and Horsepower to rev up Pawsitive Steps

Did you know that dogs and horses are the top two animals used in therapy to improve mental and physical wellbeing?

It only makes sense then that Coco, Pawsitive Steps’ canine mascot, and a shiny Ford Mustang (horsepower unleashed) are to be among the main attractions at the Pawsitive Steps Towards Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo at Castle Hill Showground on Sunday, September 2.

Pawsitive Steps Towards Mental Health, run by Positive Vibes Foundation, is the very first Orange Blossom Festival Community Event and embraces and promotes a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing – with the once-in-a-lifetime chance to win the opportunity to drive a Ford Mustang guaranteed to give participants a mood boost!

Pawsitive Steps have partnered with Power Ford to give participants the chance to win a two-night trip to The Hunter Valley, lunch at Bistro Molines and a Ford Mustang to drive for the trip – all while supporting a great cause.

To enter all you have to do is register for the event and turn up on the day!

Key businesses in The Hills are also getting involved in this great mental health initiative, with The Windsor Road Private Clinic, Community Migrant Resource Centre, Power Ford and Castle Hill Country Club throwing their support behind the wellbeing expo and steps towards mental health walk.

Attendees can join one of the fun exercise demonstrations by local fitness groups, attempt the dog obstacles or enjoy a peaceful stroll through Castle Hill Showground.

Merchandise and food will be available on the day, along with plenty of dog activities and demonstrations to keep you and your furry friend happily entertained.

Register at www.TryBooking.com/vaid to be in the running for the prize of a lifetime.
