Bach­e­lor’s heart in walk

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - SARAH KEOGHAN

FOR­MER Bach­e­lor star Sam Wood is best known for steal­ing hearts on the tele­vi­sion, but this time he is out in sup­port of keep­ing them healthy.

Wood is an am­bas­sador for Walk Safely to School Day and will be mak­ing the walk on May 19 with fi­ancee Snezana Markoski and her daugh­ter Eve.

As a per­sonal trainer, Wood is urg­ing par­ents to cre­ate a health­ier life­style for both them­selves and their fam­i­lies.

“It scares me, frus­trates me and drives me that Aus­tralia is one of the fat­test coun­tries in the world,” he said. “I am de­ter­mined to be a part of a much-needed change.”

Now in its 18th year, the day is a com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive that aims to raise aware­ness and help com­bat child­hood obe­sity.

“Walk­ing to school with Eve is just one of those beau­ti­ful mo­ments,” Wood said.
