The Second Annual Calgary Seniors Walk
The 2nd Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will take place on Thursday, September 19th, on Stephen Avenue Mall in support of the Golden Age Club (www.thegoldenageclub.com). This unique walk event will take place during the lunch hour and will cover the four blocks on Stephen Avenue Mall in downtown Calgary with the goal to raise awareness and much needed funds for The Golden Age Club. The Golden Age Club offers a variety of social, recreational, health and outreach programs for Calgary’s seniors population.
The 2nd Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will consist of a walk like no other and feature walkers from all backgrounds. Individual walkers over the age of sixty-five, individual walkers under the age of sixty-five and corporate teams will be coming together to celebrate the contributions older adults make to our city. The 2nd Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will include a unique twist – with all walkers under the age of sixty-five having to walk the event route balancing an egg on a spoon – signifying the difficulties many seniors have getting around day to day.
All walkers who participate in the 2nd Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will raise pledges in support of The Golden Age Club and have a minimum of $20 in pledges to enter the event. Prizes will be given for the most money raised by an individual under the age of sixty-five, most money raised by an individual over 65, most money raised by a team and the walker who crosses the finish line first with their egg unbroken.
About The Golden Age Club
The Golden Age Club (formerly the Downtown Friendship Centre) was established in 1950 as a senior’s club – long before any other senior’s organization in Calgary. In 2000, we celebrated our 50th. Anniversary! In 2005, we redefined our mission and changed our name to the Downtown Friendship Centre, but in 2010, we returned to the Golden Age Club. If you are 35 years old or over this is the friendly Club for you!
