Torrent River Walking Club

14 07 2011














The Torrent River Walking Club kick started on June 25th at 9:00am at the Torrent River Salmon Interpretation Center! It was a great turn out and a beautiful day as friends frm the community came together.

Christine Power, local Public Health Nurse with the Rufus Guinchard Memorial Hospital, shared a short presentation with participants regarding a healthy lifestyle including good food choices and physical activity. The walk commenced then with the cutting of the ribbon as the official opening of the new one kilometre John Hogan Trail Extension. The club’s particpants returned to the building to find delicious fruits and bottled water available for them! It was an awesome morning and one that encouraged us to expect more great walks together over the summer of 2011.

Now two weeks later the walking club is still going strong! The sun seems to find it’s way to the Torrent River on Walking Club Days and there’s a great sense of community as the walk ensues promptly at 10:30am – unless we’re waiting on a person or two!

If you’re interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle with physical activity at the core, don’t do it alone! There’s always room for more – in fact the more the merrier! So bring a bottle of water and a good pair of running shoes and join us!














The Walking Club scheduled walks are as follows:
Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:30am.
Meet at the Torrent River Salmon Interpretation Center!
An interpreter will accompany all walking club members on the walk!
