The Hearts in Motion Mall Walkers have been on the move for 18 years and are in the mood to celebrate.

Some members of the Hearts in Motion Mall Walkers have been at it for 18 years.

The Hearts in Motion Mall Walkers have been on the move for 18 years and are in the mood to celebrate.

The group began in the fall of 1993 as a pilot project with groups in Nanaimo, White Rock and Prince George.

Nanaimo walking groups began in were then known as Rutherford Mall and Harewood Mall and early the next year in Harbour Park Mall.

As of last 2010, the 63 members now walking daily at Nanaimo North Town Centre are the last of the groups in the Harbour City.

The group’s mandate is to promote a healthy lifestyle through exercise and camaraderie.

It meets outside the Dancing Goat coffee shop weekday mornings and everyone walks according to their capabilities. New members are always welcome.

In acknowledging the 18 years of effort, North Town is hosting a Christmas breakfast 8:30 a.m. Wednesday (Dec.7) to mark the occasion.

For information or to become a member, please call Doris McKoen at 250-758-0997.
