Women Walking For Life

Women Walking For Life is a project funded by the CAAWS.

The participants in the project found it motivationing and fun. They enjoyed improving their physical literacy and now make movement a part of their daily routine.

“I enjoyed participating in the project. It made me more aware of the skills I must maintain to stay healthy. I never realized that striking and throwing were so important. I have 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 14 and have been involved with playing with them so I have maintained the skills. Every summer I spend at least 6 weeks at the cottage in Muskoka where I walk, carry things, play with the kids, swim, kayak and dive off the dock and climb up the dock ladders to get out of the lake after my swim. Sometimes I think I should rest more but this project made me realize how my active life keeps me healthy despite the osteoporosis. I am learning to adjust my posture and movements not to aggravate my joints and strengthen my core to support my back.

Thank you for including me in your project.” Laura
