HCoA: 10 Years & Growing Stronger

Please Sponsor Eleanor Morton in her Run for HCoA!

HCoA friend, Eleanor Morton is launching the HCoA 10 Years Stronger Campaign by running a ½ marathon to support the Hamilton Council on Aging’s new Let’s Get Moving Program.

Let’s Get Moving is designed to educate older adults on the mutual benefit of various forms of active transportation as a means of getting around and staying active, engaged, and healthy as we age!  Partially funded by the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund, Let’s Get Moving will consist of 30 workshops for older adults in Hamilton, between October 2017 and March 2019. HCoA is required to fundraise approximately $8,000 for the Let’s Get Moving Project over the next two years. HCoA is grateful to Eleanor Morton for launching our 10 Years Stronger: Let’s Get Moving Campaign with her 21km run!
