For more information please contact leisure.events@golden.ca.

In recognition of how dangerous walking can be for seniors and community members alike, in the winter months, the Town of Golden, Leisure Services Department will again host a free walking program for community members. The drop-in sessions will begin on Wednesday, December 7th at the Mount 7 Rec Plex from 1:15 p.m.- 3 p.m.

Sarah Wegelin, Special Event Co-ordinator for the Town of Golden is encouraging everyone to get out of the snow and stretch those bones‟.

“We had an excellent turn out last winter, with more than 20 community members coming out to walk each week; the program served as a bit of a social as well. Last winter we listened to music, kept track of our steps through the use of a pedometer and got to know each other while walking.”

With the sidewalks slippery and the snow banks mountainous, these winter months make getting out of the house extremely difficult for many community members, especially seniors when the risk of falling could lead to serious injury.  This program is offered to anyone who has difficulty walking in the winter.

For more information please contact Sarah Wegelin at 250-439-9756 or email: leisure.events@golden.ca  For more information contact Sarah Wegelin, Special Event Co-ordinator at 250.344.2271 extension 243.
