Step Up and join in Winter Walk Day

Step Up Alberta!

Join thousands of Albertans for Winter Walk Day on Feb. 9. It’s easy to participate — simply walk outside for at least 15 minutes. Walking is great for health, the environment and building community all year round.

Count yourself in by registering yourself or your group at www.shapeab.com. More than 60,000 Albertans walked one million minutes last year and 100,000 Albertans are expected to participate this year.

Join the staff of Ponoka FCSS at 5006-52 Ave. as they go for a walk about downtown Ponoka at noon on Feb. 9. Walk together or organize your own event. New this year — Alberta Motor Association is sponsoring the Step Up Alberta-Winter Walk Day Challenge Award to be presented to a school, an older adults group, a workplace and five communities to celebrate their achievement.

Step up Ponoka, get outside and enjoy the fresh, crisp Alberta air.
