Have you been or are you being treated for osteoarthritis? And do you want to show that exercise is good for you? Then you might want to participate in the fourth edition of the Hipwalk on Sunday the 24th of September. This is a sponsored walk to draw attention to the importance of exercise for people with osteoarthritis. This time the Food Bank (de Voedselbank) is the charity for which all participants will walk. The orthopedics team of the Anna Hospital, the Catharina Hospital, the Elkerliek and Máxima MC are there to encourage you.
The Hipwalk will take place on Sunday the 24th of September at the running track in Eindhoven (J.C. Dirkxpad 7, 5631 BZ Eindhoven). The event will run from approximately 11 AM to 2 PM.
During the Hipwalk you can show how well you function and how strong your endurance is. You walk laps of 400 meters in one hour. You do this entirely at your own discretion and at your own pace. Supporters are always welcome and a buddy can also join you in the fun.
You can ask your family, friends and acquaintances if they would like to sponsor you via the website for the sponsored walk. You can then donate the total amount you have collected prior to the sponsored walk on the website: www.hipwalk.nl. The sponsor money is intended for the Food Bank in the Eindhoven region.
