Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Lori Beattie, owner or Fit Frog and author of Calgary’s Best Walks, is partnering with local charities for the WALK 150 initiative. Lori is donating 1500 copies of her book, Calgary’s Best Walks, to local charities and working with each one of them to build a walking initiative into their programming.

FREE Guided Walks begin in May and June with Calgary Public Library. Check out the blog post on the Spring 2017  Walk 150 program

Walking Builds Communities!

Calgary is a walking city! Fresh, crisp air, big blue skies, nature tucked into all quadrants, hidden stairways, over 500 km of paved pathways and wonderful independent cafe’s where you can stop and recharge.  I think the best way to celebrate Canada’s birthday is to introduce Calgarians to their wonderful city, to help them meet their neighbours, to help them experience the pleasure, the perspective, that comes from taking a walk.” Lori Beattie

 

 

 

 

Canada 150th Community Fund Grant for Walk 150 initiative

In partnership with the Calgary Library Foundation and Centre for Newcomers, I am happy to have received a Canada 150 Community Fund grant to offer many free walks with my partners organizations throughout 2017. I will also be giving “Leading and Creating great Walks” workshops for the Calgary Public Library and the Centre for Newcomers so that the library and the Centre can continue to offer walk programs in house and for the public.
