YEG WW Walk and Bowl
Weight Watchers members care about their health, that's why we joined! It is not all about the size on the tag in our clothes, for many of us our most exciting Non-Scale Victories happen when a doctor tells us our blood work shows that our efforts week in and week out are working and medications for heart disease or diabetes are no longer needed or can be dramatically lowered. We also know what it is like to live with the stigma of being different, whether that is because of obesity or disease there is a constant feeling of blame and shame. As Weight Watchers members we are continually working to change that.
We have learned on Connect that WW members love to meet up with fellow members to share, laugh, and well...connect! A few of the YEG WW members have decided to plan a meet up and at the same time put some effort into raising funds and awareness about diabetes and to do our best to help Strike Out Stigma around the disease. So what are the details?!
When: Wednesday, June 21st 5:30-7:30pm
Where: Gold Bar Park (10955 50 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6A 2E9)
What: Bowling and a good walk and POTLUCK FOOD! There is a great walking path at Gold Bar!
Cost: A donation to Diabetes Canada. Donate an amount you are comfortable with, and if you would like to do more, please join this team and make a goal to raise $250 - you can earn yourself a funky retro bowling shirt! *Please make your donation to the team here, or bring cash to the event.
FOOD - Bring ONE picnic dish of your choice to share with the group.
POTLUCK! Bring a Smart Point friendly dish (we'll have labels and markers so we can label the points - no guessing here!). We will provide paper plates, napkins and cutlery.
Currently there are 11 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes, that's 1 in 3 of us! It is a silent epidemic and we can do something about it - we ARE doing something about it.
