Seniors lace up shoes for over-50s walk
THE 17th annual Seniors Week Amateur Fun Walk for the over-50s, their families and friends will be held on August 21.
Hosted by the Australian Pensioners and Superannuants League, the event is a 4km flat walk along the beautiful Golden Beach foreshore, starting from the Oaks Oasis Resort in North St.
Registration is at 7am for a 8am start.
Walkers can leave their motor vehicles at the Caloundra Power Boat Club and take the free shuttle bus to the Oaks Oasis for the walk start.
Under the guidance of a professional instructor, the morning starts with a voluntary aerobic warm-up and ends with breakfast on the lawn of the power boat club.
Breakfast will be a sausage sizzle with fruit drinks, tea, coffee, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
A seated presentation and distribution of gift packs of relevant seniors and multicultural information will follow, along with gifts, prizes for the best fancy hat and best-dressed team and other fun.
Each walker will be given a coloured wrist tag for aged identification.
These tags will be collected at the club, then placed into a barrel for continuous free lucky tag draws in the Pelican Room for competitors.
Trophies also will be presented.
Entry fee is $10 per person. Children are free.
To assist with catering, early registration would be appreciated but late entries will be accepted on the day.
The walk aims to encourage seniors to engage in regular physical activity to improve strength, balance, flexibility and health for better mobility.
