Big Fit Walk
Falkirk and District Association for Mental Health
Falkirk and District Association for Mental Health (FDAMH) is a membership organisation which has a mission to assist people to recover and to promote mental wellbeing. Service users, carers and staff were encouraged to join the ‘Big Fit Walk’ on 15th June to experience the benefits of becoming more active in their community at the same time as learning about healthier lifestyles.
Everybody who participated was offered the chance to get prepared for the big day by taking part in short walks every day leading up to the event. Walkers were encouraged with pedometer packs and walking diaries. Breathing Space provided T-shirts for participants on their walk to Calendar Park which finished at Calendar House. There were a range of fun activites to take part in such as Crazy Golf, A Woodland Walk or a tour of Calendar House.
