Join a Walking Group
We're glad you are interested in joining a walking group in your community. Walking is an enjoyable, easy and low risk physical activity. It’s a great way to become more active and connect with others.
Here are three easy steps to join a group:
To help ensure your comfort and enjoyment on the group walks, we ask you to take a few minutes first and complete the Get active Questionnaire
and the Get Active Questionnaire Reference Document
. This short questionnaire is to see if there is any reason for you to check in with your healthcare professional before starting a walking program. You do not need to pass in this form to us. If you are unable to download this form, you can go to your local library and they can print off a copy of the form for you.
