Calgary Marathon

Walk & Run for Seniors

Thank you 2022 Team Kerby!

Team Kerby laced up their sneakers to walk and run in the Calgary Marathon on May 29th  and through donations raised $6,393.90 for Kerby Centre Programs.

Kerby Centre's Programs that have benefited!

BeneFIT is a new annual program aimed at helping seniors reach their fitness goals. Staff help set smart goals, provide monthly inspiration and workshops and group walks for participants. The cost – FREE! The goal is to help keep seniors physically healthy and engaged with their community.

Sidewalk Seniors isn’t just about walking, it’s about walking and talking TOGETHER. This new initiative has been incredibly successful with people eager to join. While walking is good for physical health, walking together has been beneficial for seniors isolated during the pandemic. They can safely enjoy being with others and get outside (or in the Plus 15s in cold weather) to get their steps in!

Throughout the pandemic Kerby Centre has been committed to supporting the health and wellness of seniors. While we had to close our doors, we launched free online fitness classes to reach seniors in their homes. We’ve received so much positive feedback that we will continue to offer online classes even though our doors are now open.

Thank you to everyone who supported and donated!
