Langley Walk a ‘brilliant’ success

For more than half a century the Langley Walk has offered a free day of fun in the fresh air, to promote fresh air and exercise.

Chris Lakusta of Aldergrove has proudly walked in every Langley Walk since 2001 (except 2007) and has the collection of badges to prove it!

He was one of many hundreds who joined under perfect sunny skies to walk, run, cycle and push strollers along the five and ten kilometre routes, starting from the new $13 million Timms Community Centre in downtown Langley City.

Free snacks, family activities and entertainment were offered to the participants.

There were about 800 walkers taking part this year, and the winners of participation categories were:

• Most Walkers from an Elementary School: Wix-Brown Elementary;

• Most Walkers from a Middle School: Langley Fundamental Middle/Secondary School;

• Most Walkers from a Secondary School: Aldergrove Community Secondary School;

• Most Walkers from an Organization: Langley Immanuel Christian Reformed Church;

•Most Walkers from a Family: Humberstone Family;

• Oldest Walker: Dale Attrell (87 years).

For more than half a century the Langley Walk has offered a free day of fun in the fresh air, to promote fresh air and exercise. The walk is hosted by a different Langley Township and City community each year.

The Langley Walk participants were led through Punjabi “bhangra” dances in warm-up exercises before the starting whistle blew at 1:30 p.m., Sunday.

Langley City Mayor Ted Schaffer (at right, with wife Jean at left) and Councillor Rudy Storteboom joined the many hundreds at this year’s Langley Walk Sunday afternoon.

A large group of Aldergrove families took part in the Langley Walk on Sunday to celebrate Stan Homeniuk’s ongoing recovery from liver cancer. Stan still isn’t strong enough to walk that distance but his wife Lana and friends from the Simon, Jensen, Bigg, Hill and Johansen families walked in his place.
