Wawa residents are being challenged - for the health of it.
Wawa Family Health Team dietician Jenelle McAuley explains that the annual Community Walking Challenge has been revamped for its sixth year, becoming the "For the Health of It Challenge", which will broaden to other aspects of healthy living, as well.
McAuley adds the challenge is no longer team-based, though participants are welcome to form teams and challenge each other, if they wish.
While the challenge doesn’t start until next week, a kickoff event will be held tonight, intended to provide more details and help people register, though McAuley notes there will also be a special demonstration, too.
The kickoff event starts at 6:30 pm, at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre.
