A Great Idea for a Christmas Stocking Stuffer or a Hanukkah Gift …

A Globe Walk Lanyard would be a perfect small gift idea with a big effect for those on your list who are 50+ years!

For the low cost of  $20, the lanyard will give a Globe Walk team member access to the indoor track at the Field House twice a week from January through April.

If they are not a team member, it is easy (and free) to become part of the SCOA team.

To pick up a lanyard, visit the SCOA office in the Saskatoon Field House or for more information, call our office at 306 652-2255.

Globe Walkers – Earn Your Own Olympic Medals!

We have a new goal for 2018!  Our miles will earn medals!  We are going to be following in the footsteps of our Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Athletes.  January will be our “training” month, February will be “competition” month, and March & April will give us an opportunity to up the medal count   with our efforts.  The more miles we earn, the more medals we win!

All of us can be medalists.  Here is how it works.  You will earn:

  • A Bronze Medal: If you make up to 99 miles by the end of April
  • A Silver Medal:  If you make between 100 – 199 miles by the end of April
  • A Gold Medal: If you make 200 miles by the end of April

You can earn more than one medal depending on the miles you earn – SO LET’S GO FOR IT!

Challenge yourself and your team members to be champions.

2018 “Going for Gold” Globe Walk!

Globe Walk Lanyards – Going Fast!

Globe Walk is off to a GREAT start.  Lanyards went on sale on Dec. 1st and we sold about 135  lanyards (almost 60%) in one day!  The 1-2 pm spots were sold out.  We still have spots at 2-3 pm for both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday.

So – if you plan to use the track at the Field House for the 2018 Globe Walk season – don’t wait too long to pick up your lanyard.  They can be picked up at the SCOA office.

This year, the purchase of a lanyard comes with a Field House parking sticker for those that require one.
