Fantastic – Fun – Entertaining – Inspiring and a whole bunch of other things!
We had our largest turnout ever for this event (sold out) and I have had many positive comments on it.
The music was fabulous – it was great to see and hear “The Pikes” (two of them – Jay Semko and Ross Nykiforuk). They are great entertainers, both musically talented and funny. There is a reason that they are still touring!
Our speakers were all Globe Walk fans. They included our former Globe Walk ambassador Vera Pezer, Mayor Charlie Clark, Jeananne Klein with SCOA greetings and Richard Kilburn (of IG Private Wealth Management – our title sponsor) who always has a great message. Our guest speaker, Rick Stene spoke about the benefits of exercise. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very entertaining.
Thanks to all of those who worked so hard to make our annual windup a success. Special thanks to Ron, Sheldon and Dawna (the behind the scenes planners – Ron also acted as MC) as well as all of the Globe Walk volunteers and SCOA staff who worked the event.
For those of you who missed it – make sure you put it on the calendar for next year. You will not be sorry.
GLOBE WALK 2019 – FINAL STATISTICS
We announced the final numbers for this years’ Globe Walk. We had 2700 participants who finished in April. Collectively they logged 828,096 kilometres! We beat last years’ distance once again!
The numbers are not finalized yet – they are still coming in – but we will have made the distance required to visit all 47 National parks with kilometres to spare. Check back for the final numbers. Congratulations to all our Captains and participants. See you at our Celebration Luncheon.
We would like to thank all Globe Walk Captains for their hard work and dedication. Therefore, we are inviting all Captains to lunch prior to our annual Globe Walk Evaluation meeting.
The lunch and meeting will be held in Room 3 in the Field House at 12:30 pm on Monday, May 13, 2019.
Bring your appetite and bring your thoughts on this years Globe Walk. What worked and what could have been done differently. Bring your ideas on how to make Globe Walk even better in the 2020 season.
Please RSVP by May 6th. Contact Beth 306 652-0027 or email@example.com (we need to know the numbers in order to order food).
We look forward to seeing you there.
Our April event was informative and all kinds of fun! What do you call 112 people, with walking poles, in a confined space…Chaos! (but in a good way).
While our poling session didn’t go quite as planned, everyone got to learn how to use them and then try them out. Everyone came away smiling. Thanks to Kimberly Willison for leading the session (her new T-Shirt should say “I survived Globe Walk Poling”).
The balance presentation was well done and the participants learned a lot about improving balance. Thanks to Danelle Banman (U of S).
We were joined by Alice Samkoe, the new Coordinator for the Regina Globe Walk pilot beginning in May. We are all excited about expansion of our great program.
It was a wonderful afternoon. I will post some photos next week, as soon as I download them. Thanks to all of our great volunteers who helped make the day a success.
I hope everyone is looking forward to our final event of the year – the Celebration Luncheon which will take place on Friday, May 10th. If you haven’t got your tickets yet, you can purchase them at the SCOA office. For more information call 306 652-0027 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the progress map for March (remember, an artificial formula charts this). After updates from Captains we have a final number of kilometres logged – 219,908!
We are on the home stretch – keep up the good work!
Congratulations Globe Walkers – you did it again! We had another increase in total kilometers in March. We covered 219,125 km. That works out to an average of 86.03 kilometres per Globe Walker. Give yourselves a pat on the back. Well done!
Check back here to see where we are on our journey through Canada’s National Parks. I will post the map shortly.
