Cross-Canada walk challenge in the works
October is just around the corner and so is “Healthy Workplace Month.”
While the local Northwestern Health Unit will not be hosting a workplace walking challenge this fall, district workplaces still can sign up for the virtual “Walk Across Canada Workplace Challenge” at www.workplacewalks.ca
Workplaces that register for the challenge before Oct. 4 will be eligible to receive a set of pedometers for their workplace.
As well, the local health unit has sets of pedometers available to loan to workplaces, although they do require a $10 deposit.
