We are off to a GREAT start! The Captain’s Launch was a huge success – we had to add more chairs to accommodate all our wonderful captains. We had a great time at the track and at the Pickleball Court (thanks to SSFA). I hope everyone enjoyed themselves.
We had excellent coverage on CTV news. Check our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SCOA-Globe-Walk-902608563163735/ for news coverage and other updates. I will also be posting links on our webpage shortly.
We are still getting inquiries about joining the walk, and new teams continue to register. Welcome to all new Team Captains and their team members.
I want to thank all of the Captains who attended the Launch and all those who couldn’t make it. You are the heart of the Globe Walk. Your work and dedication is very much appreciated.
Our first walk on the Field House track is today. Response has been amazing. We have already added one extra track and demand requires yet another. I will be putting in a request for it today, and I will forward the details as soon as possible. I am currently taking names on a waiting list for new lanyards. If any of your members who wish to use the track do not have a lanyard, please have them contact us.
Going forward, we have a lot to look forward to: Our first stats success at the end of January and our next get together in February for our outdoor walk at the Forestry Farm (Let’s all cross our fingers that this weather will be over by then!).
Keep recruiting – participants can join the Globe Walk at anytime during our season. Every mile counts toward our goal of orbiting the Space Station (500,000 miles). Together we can do this!
We are grateful for the financial support received from Investors Group, Community Initiatives Fund, Dakota Dunes Community Development, Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association and our supporting partners Forever in Motion and City of Saskatoon. Their support makes our Globe Walk free to all participants.
