Service users at Endeavour’s Learning and Lifestyle Innisfail will put on their walking shoes as part of the 12th annual Walk to Work day on Friday October 1st.
Nine service users and support workers will walk 2.2 kilometres from their residential accommodation along the picturesque South Johnstone River as part of their health and fitness program.
(Acting) Service Coordinator Kylea Bergquist will be participating in the walk and said regular exercise is important in maintaining quality of life for adults with a disability.
“We take advantage of the natural beauty of Innisfail and do many outdoor activities including walks along the river to the Centenary Bridge and playing tennis as part of our fitness and community access programmes,” said Kylea.
“The benefits of exercise aren’t just physical, it’s also an opportunity for people with a disability to access to community and build social networks.”
Pedestrian Council of Australia (PCA) says moderate physical activity such as walking even 15 minutes before and after work each day can significantly enhance well-being and productivity, and reduce absenteeism in the workplace.
According to the PCA regular walking can also help to relieve feelings of depression or anxiety.
