Mark your calendar for the 12th Annual Hannukah Hustle coming November 17th 2013
The Hannukah Hustle is a fun run/walk for people of all ages in support of The Club Fitness Centre and active living programs at Shalom Village in Hamilton, Ontario.
Hundreds of runners and walkers are joined by family, friends, volunteers and other spectators as they participate in walking and running events at Shalom Village. It is always a fun-filled fall day for people of all ages.
Proceeds go to support active living programs at Shalom Village, especially The Club , an innovative fitness centre for people over the age of 70.
The Club grew from a research project performed in collaboration with McMaster University. The study demonstrated the dramatic effect an active lifestyle can have on the quality of life experienced by older adults. A marked reduction in the incidence of falls and improvements in mobility were both documented. Participants not only felt better but found everyday tasks easier to accomplish.
Club members range from the actively mobile to those who rely on wheelchairs or walkers to get around. Head Coach Greg Almas and his team develop a personal fitness plan based on individual needs and abilities. It is a personalized approach to better health with an emphasis on fun.
Shalom Village is a not-for-profit organization providing services to seniors, including long term care, assisted-living apartments, a day program for adults with disabilities, as well as our fitness centre. Shalom Village is affiliated with the McMaster University Faculty of Health Sciences, is accredited with exemplary standing by Accreditation Canada, and is an active member of the Ontario Long Term Care Association.
