Once again Sport Ireland and Local Sports Partnerships around the country have teamed up with RTE’s Operation Transformation programme to encourage people to follow a healthy lifestyle in 2020. This popular TV programme encourages and inspires communities across the country to get active and adopt healthy eating habits. Why not get your New Year’s Resolutions off to a great start and adopt your own ‘Physical Activity Transformation’ by joining Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership and local community organisations on Saturday 18th January 2020 for the Operation Transformation National Walks at three locations across County Sligo. SSRP will facilitate a walk on the Sligo Town Sli na Slainte route along Doorly Park starting at JFK Parade. South Sligo AC will host a walk in Tubbercurry starting from the Square, while St .Molaise Gaels will lead out on a walk from the carpark in Grange. The distance of the various walks will range from 3km to 5km. All walks will commence at 11am with assembly and warm up from 10.45am onwards. For health and safety reasons we would please ask people not to bring dogs along to the walks.
Sports Co-ordinator Deirdre Lavin is encouraging everybody to get involved in the walks stating; “People of all ages and fitness levels are welcome on the day and in particular it would be great to see families getting involved. The events are ideal for beginners to come out and give exercise a go”.
