Come out and move for health

April 24, 2014 - 11:34 AM

You’re invited to join the Regional District of Central Okanagan with an event to celebrate Move for Health Week.

On Wednesday, May 7, Parks Services is holding a special ‘Move for Health Tracks Walk’ in Mission Creek Regional Park and along the scenic Mission Creek Greenway. This event is in conjunction with our ongoing ‘Tracks’ beginner walking program.

Participants should meet near the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan at 10 a.m.  Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes, as you’ll set out for a 40 minute walk looping along the popular greenway recreational trail.

There are prizes and following the walk participants will gather for healthy snacks, warm beverages and special cupcakes to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Regional Parks service.

Please remember to use the Leckie Road and Springfield entrance to Mission Creek Regional Park and please obey any flag-people involved with the Springfield Road reconstruction project.

Move for Health Week is a program of the B.C. Recreation and Parks Association which has provided funds to help coordinate this event.
