Walking SA has been successful in receiving funding from the Office of Recreation and Sport for its Walktober 2017 initiative. This builds on the promotion and events we conducted throughout October 2016, including the key Trails Less Travelled event. We’ve got some great ideas to expand upon 2016’s initiatives to further meet our vision: to see more people walking more often.
This is a significant opportunity for Walking SA’s members to promote walking in their club or organisation as well as reach out to the walking community at large to promote our vision of more people walking more often. Over the next few months we will be establishing a program for Walktober 2017 and we are actively seeking involvement from all our members to be part of it. We would like members to:-
- Collaborate with us to promote walking events in October as part of Walktober 2017
- Create events, such as “Come and Try Days” and Guided Walks that could encourage walking and potential membership
- Create other opportunities for promoting walking
- Links with other organisations to promote walking events and activities
Please contact Walking SA to discuss opportunities as to how we might collaborate to promote walking in Walktober 2017.
