Here's a study at UofC. Some orienteers may fit the bill.....They need subjects for a study examining whether properly fitted orthotics can reduce knee pain for people with knee osteoarthritis. You’ll be provided with free orthotics that match your individual biomechanics. If you’ve been diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis, age 40-85 and have had a knee x-ray in the last two years, you may be a great fit for the study. Subjects will receive FREE fitted orthotics.
Great event at Elbow Bluffs on Saturday - lovely weather and a fun course. Thanks to Clarence and his helpers for giving us a great day.
Only a few spots left!
Jane's Walks are happening in Calgary this weekend. Lots of very interesting themed walks. "Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbours."
The first Wednesday Event of the evening takes place tonight at Canmore Park (19th St NW & Chicoutimi Dr). See you after 6:30 for some fun sprint-like courses!
