As part of the Village’s Age-Friendly Program funded by the Ministry of Health, the successful Steps to Better Health walking group has expanded in 2019.
Funding was provided to place signs along the dike, showing exercises which can be performed at the park benches. The western end of the dike has a park bench with a map, some general instructions, and 4 exercises of the "Vitalia" program and 4 exercises of the "Enduro" program. The Vitalia program is well suited for seniors while the Enduro program is a better fit for younger walkers.
The Steps to Better Health walking group is open to everyone at no cost, and meets in front of the Senior’s Centre, 421-7th Avenue, at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesdays (30 minute walk) and Thursdays (60 minute walk).
Many thanks to Selena at the Similkameen Pharmacy for her tireless work on this project!
