Thank You to all those that joined us at our finish-line picnic in celebrating our Nova Metis walking group's completion of the 10K walking program.  Walk was great, amongst the refreshing trees of Green Timbers park, and the food was well met and devoured ;).  A special thank you to all our volunteers and to our walk leader and event coordinator Kerry Marion.  The T-shirts were superb and a nice reward.

We are hoping and planning to do this again next year, so keep in touch to join our walking group in January of 2017 to work your way to a 10 kilometre walk, you will enjoy the challenge.

Nova Metis walking group is also going to try to keep it up during the rest of the year, and plan 1h exertions to parks and places around Surrey to continue the fun, every 2 to 3 weeks on a weekday evening depending on schedules of those involved.  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
