Happy b-day, Striders

In 1989, Jos Penner and Margo Hartling, running partners, decided to revive a social group of runners as well as a walking group that resulted in the Shuswap Lady Striders. Today the Shuswap Lady Striders has gone from the original membership of 30 to today’s membership of 250 who range in age from 13 to 83.  On Sept. 25, 112 members celebrated the group’s 25th anniversary!

For an annual fee of $10, ladies wishing to keep fit, have fun and meet friends can join the Striders to participate in a variety of sports and other activities. Groups are divided into different ability levels so all can take part. For more information, email: ladystriders@gmail.com.
