    • Ray Twinney Recreation Centre (meet out front!)

    JOIN US every Thursday morning for a stroller walk for woman of ALL AGES.  Babies in strollers are welcome!


    -----

    We leave from Ray Twinny centre at 9:45am every Thursday.

    The walk is for women who are at home (working from home, chose to stay home with kids, mat leave, have a condition that doesn't allow them to work etc) and who find that they are battling depression, anxiety, isolation and loneliness.

    I am starting this walk because I suffered from some postpartum anxiety and didn't start to feel better until I found a friend who had the same thing. Plus working from home can get very lonely and it's a tough cycle from there. With my new project of Real Housewife of York Region I vowed to make mental health and mental health awareness one of my main initiatives. Thus the walk was born.

    This walk is being offered by Real Housewife of York Region because it's for women of all ages. 

    Please keep up to date on any program changes via https://www.facebook.com/realhousewifeofyorkregion/
