Seniors Walk 2012
Calgary Seniors Walk Location: Stephen Avenue Mall When: Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 12:00PM Contact: Niki Hejtmanek Email: firstname.lastname@example.org WebSite: www.calgaryseniorswalk.com The 1st Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will take place on August 30th on Stephen Avenue Mall in support of The Golden Age Club (www.thegoldenageclub.com). This unique walk event will take place during the lunch hour and cover four blocks on Stephen Avenue Mall in Downtown Calgary with the goal to raise awareness and much needed funds for The Golden Age Club. The Golden Age Club offers a variety of social, recreational, health and outreach programs for Calgary's seniors' population. The 1st Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will consist of a walk like no other and feature walkers of all ages and backgrounds. Individual walkers over the age of sixty-five, individual walkers under the age of sixty-five and corporate teams will be coming together to celebrate the contributions older adults make to our city. The 1st Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will include a unique twist - with all walkers under the age of sixty-five having to walk the event route balancing an egg on a spoon – signifying the difficulties many seniors have getting around day to day. All walkers who participate in the 1st Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will raise pledges in support of The Golden Age Club and have a minimum of $20 entry fee to the event. Prizes will be given for the most money raised by an individual under the age of sixty-five, most money raised by an individual over 65, most money raised by a team and the walker who crosses the finish line first with their egg unbroken. It is estimated that over 1,000 walkers will participate in the 1st Annual Calgary Seniors Walk and we anticipate thousands more will watch this unique event as our walkers dawn their bright yellow t-shirts and make their way through Stephen Avenue Mall with their eggs balancing on their spoons. The event is being designed to not only raise funds – but raise awareness for our seniors.. Event Details. Location: Stephen Avenue Mall
