The first day of Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to lace up those runners and go for a walk.

The Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA) and The Tyee Plaza are sponsoring a Health and Fitness Promotion starting at noon on Monday, March 21 in Spirit Square. Well known fitness trainer, Sally Feast, will lead everybody in a 10-minute warm-up and then take you on a walkabout downtown.

Each Monday until May 16 will feature a different fitness guru. Enjoy warming up to Yoga, Nia, Zumba, African Dance and Tai Chi. Don’t know what they are? Join them on Mondays at noon and find out.

There are goodie bags for the first 100 participants. Thanks to the City of Campbell River and Public Health there will be a weekly draw for a pedometer and a water bottle.

The event is sponsored by 16 downtown businesses that focus on health and fitness needs or concerns – natural remedies, supplements, organic produce, fish with the all important omega 3, footwear, clothing, books.  Learn how to prepare and cook nutritious meals.  Try a yoga class and learn how to stretch and breathe – take out a gym membership. It’s all available Downtown. In addition to the weekly draw there will be a grand prize awarded on Monday May 16 which includes a prize donated by each business.

Every Monday you participate in a noon walk you name is entered for the grand prize. The more times you walk the more times you name is entered.

Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend on Monday, March 21 and Walk For The Health Of It.
