Also, during the half-time break, there will a mass participation of tai chi which will be led from the field for supporters in attendance.
Dr Tom Tasker, GP and Chair of Salford CCG, said: “There are so many different ways to stay healthy and active that don’t revolve around a gym membership, and taking care of your mental health is just as important as your physical health. The ‘Salford Health Day’ is a great opportunity to try some new activities that will not only get you moving, but show some simple ideas of how you can take some time for yourself to improve your own wellbeing.”
