Retired senator takes part in Queens County Fitness Day activities

Retired senator Nancy Greene Raine and Queens Mayor David Dagley will be leading a family walk at Pine Grove Park June 2 at 4 p.m. 

Greene Raine is Canada’s female athlete of the 20th century, an Olympic gold and silver medalist, and one of the best-known names in Canadian skiing. She’ll be taking part in National Health and Fitness Day events in the Region of Queens. 

Greene Rain is scheduled to make an appearance at the Mersey Skatepark during the Skateboarding Fundamentals session at approximately 3 p.m. and will also take part in the 3:15 p.m. public skate at Queens Place Emera Centre.

“We’re pleased that Nancy Greene Raine is able to take part in several of our National Health and Fitness Day activities in Queens County and embrace our local hospitality,” said Dagley. “This is a wonderful opportunity for residents and visitors to Queens to meet a Canadian skiing legend, a two-time Olympic medal winner and an inspirational athlete who is a role model to many for leading a healthy, active lifestyle.”

Greene Raine will lead the walk through the trail system at Pine Grove. The walk is approximately two kilometers on groomed trail surfaces, amidst stands of century old white pine trees, with plantings of azaleas, magnolias, and rhododendrons in various stages of blooming. The public is encouraged to attend and enjoy a walk with Greene Raine. The community family walk is a rain or shine event and participants should dress for the weather. 

National Health and Fitness Day is being celebrated June 2 in communities across Canada with a variety of activities planned to encourage people to be active.
