Rimbey is gearing up to support Canada’s rich sport heritage and everyone is invited to get on the bandwagon.
Rimbey’s sports marathon is coming up on Sept. 17 and Peter Stenstrom, community services co-ordinator, said the town has plenty of free sports activity going on that day with something for everyone.
“Rimbey will host 12 solid hours of sports to commemorate the occasion,” he said. “And all ages and abilities are invited to participate.”
Activities will begin at 9 a.m. with soccer that will run until 11 a.m.
Softball will be ongoing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by ice hockey from 1 to 3 p.m. at the arena.
Gym sports will be held at the high school gym from 3 to 5 p.m. and activities will wind up with squash/racquetball and wallyball to be held at the community centre courts.
“We will accommodate any ability. It’s just about getting out and having fun playing sports,’ said Stenstrom. “Just show up.”
