WALK! with Aegis Therapies 2021

Energ by AegisAegis Therapies

 

Year 13 of WALK! with Aegis is once again a special version, with this week-long celebration of health and wellness supporting virtual-friendly events. Just as in year’s past, this event, held at hundreds of locations and various settings across the country, focuses on Aegis’ seven identified dimensions of wellness using a series customizable plans and activities to accommodate all participant levels and locations.

This year’s WALK! events are designed to continue to support the need for virtual and distanced activities while helping support connection, wellness and most importantly active aging. With the current Public Health Emergency in mind, Aegis Therapies and EngerG by Aegis have designed 2021’s WALK! activities to be flexible, and allow each participant or participating location to design their event in a way that best supports and follows all applicable infection control policies and procedures.

Daily 30-minute physical activity options, designed specifically to allow participation regardless of physical location or ability, will be delivered virtually via live and recorded events. For the full WALK! experience, Aegis and EnerG by Aegis suggest adding a second activity to support one or more of the other six dimensions of wellness (intellectual, emotional, spiritual, occupational, environmental and social). View a sample calendar with activity ideas here.

Recordings of instructor-led workouts, daily activity suggestions and support material for additional wellness activities, as well as program support materials such as timelines, customizable printable flyers and media support material, will all be available on the event website www.walkwithaegis.com.

Get your walking shoes ready and plan to WALK! with Aegis Oct. 4-10, 2021.
