Events, Fitness on 25th, YWCA News

Is sitting really the new smoking? Let’s walk and discuss! You’re invited to join the Jane’s Walk movement in Saskatoon, with YWCA Saskatoon’s Fred Dyck and his furry friend Leo, at Saskatoon’s Sutherland Dog Park.

Fred says, “Our discussion during the walk will centre around the negative effects of our sedentary lifestyle and examine ways each of us can embrace a more active lifestyle. All the while we will be getting some exercise, along with our canine friends.” If you do not have a dog companion to come along but still want to, please come for the friendship and fun.

Walk time and date: Sunday, May 7, 12:00pm, 1 hour

Walk Route: a beautiful series of walking trails by the South Saskatchewan River. Meet at the parking lot of the Sutherland Dog Park.

How to find us: “I will be waiting at the gate entrance with my dog Leo. I will be wearing a lime green wind breaker. Leo will have his white fur coat on. This parking lot has free parking and is accessed from Central Avenue off Attridge Drive.

Accessibility: our leisurely walk is for everyone…families, dogs, young and old!

Route may contain: curbs and steps, uneven terrain

Other notes: dogs welcome

Walk leader: Fred is director of fitness and facilities at YWCA Saskatoon. An avid runner, Fred has run numerous half marathons and four marathons.

Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbours.
