January 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST$15.00
Join Active Aging Coach, Patti Bishop, BSc, RHN for a 90-minute wellness workshop focused on women over 50. You will learn:
– the value of strength training as you age
– how both sleep and stress can affect weight loss and gain

– what cravings are and what they mean
There will be a combination of inspiring information and movement. Get ready to improve your balance and posture for a healthier you! Following the presentation, participants will be invited to take part in a free five-day wellness challenge.
All proceeds from this event are donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign. Resources from the Campaign are invested directly at the community level, with grassroots organizations that provide African grandmothers and the children in their care with supports that include food, educational supplies, uniforms and school fees, medical care, HIV counselling & testing, adequate housing and bedding, counselling & support groups, home visits and much more.
Event tickets for “Age Strong in 2021” are $15.
Your support can reach even further! Instead of purchasing a $15 ticket, you can choose to make a donation of $20 or more and you will receive a tax receipt.
