We are partnering with our Friends of WSAC partners and other Edmonton businesses and organizations to once again create 2 days of fun for older adults here in the greater Edmonton area!
In 2021, we hosted our first ever Race and it was a huge success. Over 100 seniors were given passports and race maps so they could visit our partners across Edmonton and area! The businesses had fun games, treats, and beverages for everyone who came to their place of business, our Centre gave away over $500 in prizes and our participants loved it! The coverage was fantastic with participants and businesses sharing their experiences with their family and friends on social media. We even had a tv crew follow one of the teams as they made their way around the city!
WHAT IS THE WESENIORS AMAZING RACE AND CHALLENGE
You will start at our Centre. We will give you an Amazing Race & Challenge Passport that will showcase all of the locations you can visit during your race. Next, you will make your way through the passport, visiting our partners who will have some fun games and activities that we know you love …old fashion games that you grew up playing!
TWO DAYS OF FUN

The top 3 point earners will win some fantastic prizes!

Side By Side Campaign
The City's newest Vision Zero educational campaign, Side By Side campaign celebrates all the ways Edmontonians move around our streets and seeks to positively influence attitudes and behaviours around travelling safely together. Over the coming weeks and months, the City will introduce educational resources that highlight ways to keep each other safe on the street.
First up, the focus will be to increase understanding and awareness of the Safe Passing Distance Bylaw that came into effect last September.
When we support active transportation like biking and walking, we reduce vehicles and traffic congestion on our streets and support physical activity. This makes Edmonton better for everyone.
Currently, some Edmontonians don’t feel safe when biking, walking, and rolling around Edmonton. We want to help Edmontonians travel safely together.
Edmonton’s Safe Passing Distance Bylaw provides clear guidance for how much room people driving need to leave to safely pass people biking on the street. Passing at a safe distance helps make sure everyone gets to their destination incident-free.
Four things to keep in mind when passing people cycling and scooting on the street:

Kids On Track is a Christian non-profit located in West Edmonton. We are a community building organization that provides hope, direction, and ongoing support for children, youth, and their parents. Educational, social, and recreational elements are combined to deliver well-rounded programs. We cultivate relationships with participants encouraging character and leadership development, social skills, and a healthy lifestyle. We strive to support families that have limited opportunities due to various challenges.
Traditionally, Kids On Track has been able to offer day-camps for children all summer long. This summer we have sadly had to suspend the day camp program but we began looking at what we CAN do. So, our Active Families program is EXPANDING! This is a chance for parents to get active and get creative WITH their children, fostering a stronger family relationship through shared experiences. We will be offering four activity slots per week M-Th as well as two Saturdays a month. There's something for everyone!
Activities like container gardening, nature games, bike days, craft days, and creative outside games will all be a part of the summer. We will provide all equipment and supplies. We will align with all the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
We know that these last few months have been rough on teenagers. Their mental health has taken a hit as well as their activity levels. We are excited to announce that the Shift Youth program will be offering outdoor recreation activities four days a week M-Th, with a morning time slot and an afternoon time slot.
Activities like bubble soccer, giant games, and high ropes are just a couple of the amazing activities our team has planned. The team is working hard to ensure that all activities will align with the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.

8 week fitness program for seniors

Stormwater Facilities have become popular recreation hotspots in Edmonton and this is not good practice. These facilities have a job to do; they are an important part of the stormwater drainage infrastructure in the city and help prevent flooding during severe weather events and by collecting run off from city streets. Water moves through these facilities throughout the year creating instability and when combined with the substances that are washed into the facility from the streets they become dangerous. Recreation on these facilities is prohibited, although it is not widely recognized. Families should find safe winter recreation alternatives. EPCOR has compiled a list of safe skating sites in Edmonton, which can be searched on our website at epcor.com/safe-rinks.
