COTA Mall Walking Program

11 APR 2019 - 19 DEC 2019

07:45 am - 09:00 am

Location:
Ocean Keys Shopping Centre
Join us every Monday and Thursday at 7:45am and 9am as the COTA (Council on the Aging WA) Mall Walking Group walks the centre. The COTA Mall Walking Program is a low cost form of exercise and also a great opportunity to make new friends. Plus, as a member of the COTA Mall Walking Group, you will enjoy exclusive coffee discounts and morning tea deals at participating retailers!

The group is led by trained leaders and each session includes a warm up, stretch, walk and cool down. Different routes in the shopping centre have been designed to cater for all ability levels, with distances ranging from 250m to 1km.

Suzanne Ralston, Manager of falls prevention programs at COTA said, ‘Walking is important as we get older because it helps improve coordination, balance, strength and allows people to stay mobile and independent. In turn people are then less likely to experience a fall. The centre provides the ideal environment for walking because it is safe, undercover, spacious and has seating for walkers to rest on.’

Transport to Ocean Keys can be individual transport or public transport. A bus stop is situated right beside Ocean Keys for added convenience.
