Five Olympic athletes who competed on the Canadian Team in track and field, trampoline, swimming, road cycling, and archery in Beijing this past summer will join the In Motion Family walk here on Oct. 4.

The walk is sponsored by several community groups and is a “Trails Open Ontario 2008” event.

The walk is also the kick-off event for the Township of Centre Wellington’s “In Motion” week. Wellington Duf­ferin Guelph Public Health is providing healthy snacks for the walk.
