Edam Forever In Motion

Edam Forever In Motion has completed its sixth season with 30 registered walkers. Our group exercised and successfully completed 1,042 walks. Thank you to Skylar Newton, Janelle Olson and Melissa Stuart from Wellness On Main, who came to share their knowledge of wellness and exercise.

We enjoyed two informative and helpful presentations, from Shania Meyers - exercise therapist

and Blaine Bentley - respiratory educator from Sask. Health.

Thank you to the Edam Community Recreational Centre for continually accommodating the walkers. Job well done and much appreciated.

Exercises will continue at the seniors’ centre and walkers may enjoy the walking trail for the summer. The Forever in Motion program will resume in the fall.

Special Thank You to all the walkers/exercisers who provided humour, encouragement and fellowship to support this worthwhile project.

“Exercising is an investment not an expense.”
