    “Walk to Tuk is NWT’s biggest physical activity event. Walk to Tuk participants are more active on average than what the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines recommend. This amazing NWT original event is a great way to stay active in the cold months of winter. We are super excited and can’t wait to get started.” said Geoff Ray, Executive Director of the NWTRPA.
