Move Your Body, Change Your Mind


Thank you so much for your past participation in the Minds in Motion KW Walking Classic. Whether a first time participant or an ongoing enthusiast the excitement and inspiration that has been an integral part of the successful 5 year history of our event is addictive!  As you know, we are making a radical shift in our event date.  The next Minds in Motion KW Walking Classic will be held on Sunday, May 11, 2014.  There are many compelling reasons for this date change.  Among them:

• our traditional fall event made communicating and making plans with stakeholders during the summer months … which is our critical planning time most challenging
• desire to connect with area schools and universities to support our event with volunteers and participants…very difficult to accomplish in the month of September
• the chance to enhance and highlight our mental health advocacy by aligning our event with Mental Health Week.

You are no doubt wondering how you will be able to last until the move to our 2014 spring event.  You will be pleased to know that we have a solution for you.  Announcing:

A one day walking conference “Move Your Body, Change Your Mind” at Wilfrid Laurier University on Saturday, May 11 2013. This will be an all day conference with Keynote Speaker, various workshops during the day along with a catered lunch and snacks. We anticipate a conference cost of approximately $100 to support our costs along with an honourarium for our presenters.
We will have walking professionals from across Ontario with workshops targeted for all levels of skill to make sure you get the very most out of your walking and fitness routines. Whether you want to shape up, walk faster, lose weight, or learn more advanced walking technique there will be something for all. All this and a chance to network with walking enthusiasts from across the province.
