Get in motion this fall and #inmotionWE
with thousands of Windsor-Essex residents!
Feeling that rath of fall and need a boost? You’re in luck, as October 3th-9th is National in motion week and Windsor-Essex has some free and fun activities planned! On Wednesday October 5th, you can get in motion with community leaders and residents of all ages to take our annual “couch potato pledge” and a short walk in your community! Come and celebrate our 9th annual event, and you may also walk away with #inmotionWE giveaways and prizes too. To raise the level of fun, we also invite you to tag a photo of you and/or others (including your pet) being active with #inmotionWE.
This 9th annual event is done through the passion and strong partnership of Windsor-Essex Communities in motion (W-E CIM). This year, we welcome residents of all ages and municipal leaders to join any of our in motion events to celebrate physical activity and healthy community living in Windsor-Essex County!
In motion Awards Ceremony
To kick-off our local in motion celebrations, the Town of Essex will be hosting our annual SWOntario in motion Awards ceremonies on Monday, October 3h at the Essex Centre Sports Complex (60 Fairview Ave West) from 1-2pm. This year’s celebrity master of ceremonies is Kara Ro from AM800 who will get our in motion week celebrations in motion. So come out to hear who our 2016 in motion Award recipients are or participate in our “couch potato” in motion pledge, either way, we will lift your spirits and get you in motion!

Every year to celebrate being active and National in motion month, W-E CIM hosts a FREE public event. The 12 o’clock Walk around Windsor-Essex County gets over 600+ people of all ages in schools and in our communities walking to celebrate being active.
