Walk ‘n Roll-a-thon!

The ISC is holding a Walk ‘n Roll-a-thon as a Fundraiser for the Centre and to promote a healthy, active lifestyle!  The Centre offers several fantastic fitness programs and our members have found that they have increased flexibility and mobility since beginning these programs. Check out the programs listed under the Fitness category.

If you would like to be a walker, a roller (those with walkers) or take a stroll down Dundas Street, please register with the Centre.  Sponsorship/donation forms are available in the office.  Each donation of $10 will receive a tax deductible receipt because the Islington Seniors’ Centre is a registered charitable organization.

If you don’t walk to partake in the walk, you can always sponsor one of our members on the walk.
