RESIDENTS at Stockland’s retirement village in Patterson Lakes have walked the entire distance around Australia’s coastline, while still staying close to home.
To help keep active during lockdown, the residents began tracking their steps. Together they have now walked more than 34,000 kilometers together.
Resident Kathy Upton said everyone in the residential village “has been incredibly supportive since we’ve taken on this challenge. By starting this trek around the world I was able to meet with other residents, which has really helped me feel connected to not only my neighbours but the wider community.”
“When you see how far we’ve travelled around the world, it really helps put it in perspective. We enjoy the social aspects on the walks and keep encouraging each other to achieve our goal to make it around the world! We all really look forward to these walks each week and hope they continue for a long time to come.”
