North Grenville has a new club focused on healthy living. The Family Trail Walk/Run Club meets every Saturday at Veterans’ Park. Warm-up kicks off at 8:00am. Director of Parks, Recreation and Culture Mark Guy says there are no strings attached.
Money for the club came from the Healthy Kids Community Challenge. The municipality received a $5,000 grant to launch the club. About 30 people show up each week. Guy says the everyone is welcome.
The club runs through the summer, culminating with participation in the Neon Night Fun Run for Childhood Cancer on September 22. Awards and prizes will be handed out at the end of the season. For more details, contact Recreation Coordinator Tammy Hurlbert by calling 613-258-9569 ext. 123.
