Penticton, one of more than 83 communities to celebrate Spirit of BC Week 2007, hosted Light up the Night, a GetActive! Penticton event. A 5 km and 2.5 km community night walk along the lakeshore paths, through parks and along the river channel included refreshments, entertainment and glow sticks to light up the walk. Led by recognized community champions, the event motivated the community to get together and promote a healthy lifestyle.
