Hi! I’m Kelly, Administrative and Program Coordinator at Peachland Wellness Centre. I am part of Team Wellness Warriors and I've decided to ride a bike for the PWC Walk for Wellness and it's not just because I'm an avid cyclist with a penchant for spandex. No, the real reason is that my joint health isn't what it used to be, and walking long distances can be a real pain in the...well, joints. But just because I have mobility issues doesn't mean I can't participate in this great event - I can adapt and if you have trouble with mobility, you can too!
There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether it's walking, riding a bike, using a scooter or wheelchair, donating, or even just cheering on the sidelines with a giant foam hand.
My personal goal is to ride 60 km per week and raise $500 during the course of the event, so if you see me out on the road, sweat dripping down my face, know that I’m not just doing this for my own fitness - I’m doing it for something much bigger than myself and if you’re able to support me in reaching my goals, whether it’s through a donation or just a word of encouragement or wave as you pass me on Beach Avenue, I would be incredibly grateful.
Join me in this all-abilities fundraising event and help PWC continue to provide programs and services to our community.
