North End Walkers Promoting Healthy Lifestyle

(Tuesday, June 10, 2008) Councillor Dawn Sloane, District 12, Halifax-Downtown, presented the North End Walkers with a certificate of recognition for their commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle in District 12. The group which consists of 32 members from the North End community, began walking the 7,400,000 steps to and from Oprah's studio in Chicago in 2004.

They celebrated this achievement at noon on Tuesday, at the North End Library, along with their continuing commitment to community causes and invited all their friends in the North End community to join them.

"The members of the North End Walkers are an inspiration to their neighbours in the North End community to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle and are to be commended for their commitment and their enthusiasm," says Councillor Sloane.
