Active Aging Canada developed a mall walking program in 2016 entitled, Mall Movers, with funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The research confirms the benefits of physical activity for optimal aging and helping older adults remain independent.
The Mall Movers program encouraged participants to walk the mall every day and join in a free stretch and strength class offered one day a week. The mall provided a safe, barrier free environment for the walkers and the class was led by a certified fitness instructor.
