The Garden City Community Centre 55-plus program usually meets inside the Garden City Community Centre to socialize and stay active, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put that on hold. The seniors group has pivoted to try Nordic walking at the Garden City Collegiate track.
Coun. Devi Sharma (Old Kildonan) provided the group with $1,000 through a Winnipeg Wellness grant to purchase walking poles. Nordic walking helps participants improve strength, balance and fitness.
