Walkathon Information for 2023

Hello everyone.   It is time once again to start preparing for our Provincial Walkathon.  I will be putting the packages for our 2023 Walkathon together very soon.  Club participation last year was still down due to Covid 19 but was on the upswing. I am hopeful that 2023 will be a better year and more clubs will be able to participate.

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.  At the end of six weeks your information will be remitted to the event coordinator and tabulated to see the winning results. Because of the way the calculations are done every club has the same opportunity. All of this information will be available in June at our annual convention.

 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 information that may be helpful. https://www.participaction.com/en-ca. Our Walkathon is all about having fun and getting healthy.

The dates for the 2023 Walkathon will be the same as 2022, 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 make this a fun and healthy year!!
