Walk with Lord Mayor Zalepa and get your steps in

The Niagara-on-the-Lake Step Challenge kicked off on June 2 and the town's lord mayor, Gary Zalepa, wants to help residents reach their step goals.

In aims of surpassing last year’s collective goal of 60 million community steps, Zalepa is hosting five village walks across NOTL: Glendale on June 13, Old Town on June 17, Virgil on June 20, St. Davids on June 24, followed by a walk in Queenston the same day afterward.

All the walks start at 9 a.m., except for Queenston's, which begins at 10.

Each walk will be 30 minutes long. In case of rain, the walk of the day will be relocated to the community centre.

“I look forward to walking with Niagara-on-the-Lake residents and wish all registered Step Challenge participants the best of luck,” Zalepa said in a media release.
