Keeping social distance is a deadly choice.
Personal hygiene is a deadly choice.
Good eating habits are a deadly choice.
Lions community partner Deadly Choices have launched a number of community messages regarding Covid-19. Lions senior players Charlie Cameron and Allen Christensen have assisted in spreading the message by taking part in the community videos.
Cameron said now, more than ever, it is important for people to make deadly choices.
“For me, promoting a Deadly Choice right now is so important at a time like this,” he said.
“This includes washing our hands and looking after ourselves and promoting that to others.
“If we’re being good at that, then that’s a deadly choice.”
Deadly Choices aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices for themselves and their families – to stop smoking, to eat good food and exercise daily.
Deadly Choices also encourages our people to access their local Community Controlled Health Service and complete an annual ‘Health Check’. In Aboriginal slang, if something is ‘deadly’ it is great. As such a Deadly Choice is a good choice, and we encourage community to make such choices each day.
This is the fourth year of the Brisbane Lions and Deadly Choices partnership.
