Tell us more about Sugar Club and how it came about?
We are a walking club formed four years ago by like-minded women who have attended training at WINGS.
Sugar is an acronym - Self Empowerment, Unique, Gracious, Aware, Reflect.
There are about 20 of us, between 40 and 75 years old. It’s a big age gap, and having a name gives us a sense of belonging. Sugar Club is more than a walking club; it is a support group and a chance for fellowship. After walks we chat about our experiences and knowledge about topics like money management, health and how to handle stress at home. It’s very meaningful.
Walking is great for mental health. It makes you more alert, and more aware of your surroundings. When we walk, we encourage club members not to talk too much so that people are more focused. During the walks we will take pictures and share the pictures to see if people had noticed certain trees or flowers.
