Flashmob promotes healthy body image

Groups from Nanaimo that dare to dance are encouraged to participate in a free flashmob contest promoting healthy body image and self-esteem.

Part of the Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness campaign, the provincewide contest is searching for groups willing to learn a pre-recorded dance routine and perform it in their own community.

Winners will receive the official campaign Love our Bodies, Love Ourselves wristbands and Perfect is Boring T-shirts.
