Largest ever GOGA indoor 'Walk in the Park' Event
GOGA in Fife scheduled the 7th Fife Walk in the Park for Thursday 22nd November around 11:15 at the Michael Woods Sports & Leisure Centre. Sadly the weather was awful and it was bitterly cold.
Plan B was swiftly brought into action. The Walk in the Park became an Indoor Walk in the Park with around 60 adults with severe and complex needs, plus 30 - 40 support staff, coaches, volunteers and peer mentor volunteers taking part. Instead of a distance leisure walk we changed to a 20 minute walk around the perimeter of the 8 court games hall. Around 11:45, Plan B was judged an outstanding success.
Pamela and I signed off dozens of participation certificates and issued new certificates to first timers. The GOGA in Fife Walk in the Park initiative has been an outstanding success to date and walks 8 ad 9 are planned for early in 2019. In between organised mass walks participants are engaged in local walks with their friends and significant others. Walking, adapted cycling and recreational swimming are core activities of GOGA in Fife. Paths for All and Bums off Seats are key GOGA in Fife partners in the promotion of walking.
