The cold weather and snow can keep a lot of people indoors but everyone is advised to step outside to mark Winter Walk Day. Safe Health Active People Everywhere (SHAPE) is trying to encourage an active lifestyle for everyone in during the winter.
AHS reminds anyone taking part to dress for the temperatures. They say to keep extremities covered and warm, and wear shoes or boots that keep you dry and also have good grip. AHS will be on location with information GPRC and are encouraging Grande Prairie residents to take a walk around the Muskoseepi Park reservoir to mark the day.
Winter Walk Day was launched in 2006 and last year 100,000 people across Alberta participated.
