Jardins Intérieurs residents take part in the Fêtes de St-Lambert and the Grand Healthy Aging walk.

Sunday August 25, 2013

Jardins Intérieurs residents take part in the Fêtes de St-Lambert and the Grand Healthy Aging walk. During the Fêtes de Saint-Lambert, Jardins Intérieurs residents and activity coordinators got together to walk more than 1 kilometre for the Grand Healthy Aging walk.

The starting point of this activity was the residence’s kiosk on the festival site; from there, residents walked all the way to St-Denis park in St-Lambert, to play a game of bocce and enjoy a healthy snack under the sun. Our residents were very happy and everyone appreciated this activity.

 

The Grand Healthy Aging walk aims to promote physical activity for seniors through walking, while giving residents an opportunity to have a fun, pleasurable experience. Between June 10th and September 6th, every participant counted his/her steps every day with a pedometer provided at the beginning of the project. The ultimate objective: accumulating all steps from all participants and crossing together the entire American continent, coast to coast.
