Niagara County is proud to once again host the annual Senior Walk in the Park (SWIP) event. SWIP was established in May 2001 to celebrate older adults and promote healthy living and activities in a community setting. The inaugural gathering was at Goat Island in Niagara Falls, NY. Eleven years later we continue to gain momentum and grow with our annual event. Over 250 people participated in the 2011 event at the John Duke Senior Center in Niagara Falls despite chilly temperatures.
SWIP 2012 will take place at a new location on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at the Calvin K. Richards Senior Center/Youth Activity Center, Veterans’ Memorial Park in the Town of Niagara located at 7000 Lockport Road in Niagara Falls. The event is free to the public with registration beginning at 10:00 A.M. and offers three routes to choose from. The festivities include warm-up activities, a health fair, health screenings, entertainment, refreshments, and raffles.
This free event is made possible through the generous donations of our area businesses and neighbors. Some of our past and current sponsors include Wagners Farm Market, Tim Hortons of Niagara, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Univera Health Care, Independent Health, Sam’s Club, Ernie Fera, Calamar, Health System Services, Elderwood Senior Care, HANCI, EPIC, Home Helpers & Direct Link, General Mills, M&T Bank Reverse Mortgages, Niagara Co.
