The Healthy 10 expanded: Last week of Canalside outdoor fitness classes

Fitness at Canalside has drawn more than 20,000 participants to the Buffalo harborfront during the last year and a half. This week is the last time this year's fans of free outdoor exercise can add to those ranks.

As summer comes to a close, residents in the region can look forward to trading in their sneakers for skates at the ice at Canalside, said Kate Schrum, a community relations specialist with BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, which sponsors both fitness options.
