Our activity for World Diabetes day includes both exercise and screening.
The screening test is a self-directed Risk Assessment tool (Ausdrisk) which the individual completes and adds up the score, if the risk is high, advice should be sought from your doctor.
The exercise involves a low level walk of 3 km, starting at the Lions Shack. following points of interest returning to the Shack.
The distance traveled by each person will be logged to create a combined distance traveled. It is hoped to exceed Australia’s circumference (25760kms) – hence the title “Lap the Map”. This walk showcases some projects of Emu Park Lions – Lions Park, and exercise machines on the gym trail. You may spot several Historic Trail Emus on the journey.
Be on the lookout! And remember, the Historic Trail is a great (and Interesting) walk for another day.
