Senior's Falls Prevention Month - Virtual Trek Across Alberta

TREK Logo SmallThis November’s Seniors’ Falls Prevention month focuses on the ‘Keep Active’ message. In partnership with UWALK, Finding Balance is hosting a virtual TREK across Alberta. Seniors across the province can join the TREK challenge by counting and recording the number of steps they take from November 1 to 30. The virtual TREK challenge begins in Coutts, Alberta and finishes in Fitzgerald, Alberta. The goal is 3,263,500 steps.

Let's take steps together to prevent falls.

You can pick up your free Finding Balance pedometer and passport (while supplies last) at the Leduc Beaumont Devon Primary Care Network office.The passport provides information on how to join, count steps, convert minutes of other activities like biking or shoveling into steps and where to log all steps. Group leaders can log steps for their group or individuals can log their own steps.

#301, 4710 - 50 Street, Leduc AB.
