Hello everyone.   It is hard to believe that another year has passed.  It is time once again to start preparing for our Provincial Walkathon.  I will be putting the packages for our 2020 Walkathon together very soon.  We had excellent club participation last year. We are looking forward to a repeat of that involvement.

This event is meant to encourage all the members of our Seniors Clubs across Saskatchewan to get moving after a long winter. For six weeks your club members will keep track of their daily physical activities using a formula supplied in the information your club will receive. As promised this year we will be using kilometers instead of miles.  At the end of six weeks your information will be remitted to the event coordinator and tabulated to see the winning results.  All of this information will be available at the convention in June where certificates will be presented to the winners. Because of the way the calculations are done every club has the same opportunity

It is called a walkathon but other forms of exercise are acceptable.  Cycling, swimming and bowling just to name a few.  Also using a treadmill is an acceptable form of exercise.  The Participaction website has a list of 150 activities that you may find useful as well. https://www.participaction.com/en-ca. Our Walkathon is all about having fun and getting healthy.

The dates for the 2020 Walkathon will be the same as 2019, April 1st to May 15th.  Club totals must be in no later than May 25th.  I will be mailing out packages to the clubs at the end of February.  If you do not receive a package and are interested in joining in the walkathon, or have questions please contact me at one of the forms of communication listed below.

Let’s get moving!!!
