Congratulations to all the clubs and walkers for being a part of our walkathon again this year. Every walker should be very proud. You are an inspiration to all.

Have a wonderful summer and be sure to keep moving!

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 kit your club will receive.  At the end of six weeks your information will be remitted to the event coordinator and tabulated to see the winning results.  All this information will be available at the convention or before. Certificates will be presented to the winners at the convention. Because of the way the calculations are done every club has the same opportunity to receive a certificate.

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 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 2024 Walkathon will be the same as 2023, April 1st to May 15th.  Club totals must be in no later than May 24th.  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 make this the best walkathon we have ever had by encouraging our family and friends to join in the walk!!
