GET YOUR WALKING SHOES READY!!!!
The Webster County Health Department would like to invite you to join us for “Walk at Lunch 2014”. We will begin this six week program on Monday, March 31, 2014, and it will run through Monday, May 12.
Participants will need to have measurements taken on the first and last day of the contest and track their steps weekly with a pedometer. At the end of the six week period, a rewards ceremony will be held, with contestants being encouraged to bring their favorite healthy dish along with a copy of the recipe. Recipes will be copied and made available to all participants. Prizes will be awarded and speakers will be present.
Although Walk at Lunch 2014 encourages walking at lunch, walking at lunch time is not necessary to participate. Members will be encouraged to walk 30 minutes per day, five days a week. There will be a program representative on Bakers Island leading a walk at 12:00 noon, Monday through Friday, during this event and all are welcome to join us. The first 50 participants to sign up will receive a free pedometer.
Weekly tips and information with be available via the newspaper, as well as Webster County Health Department’s website and Facebook page. Please check back weekly for further information.
To sign up, or for questions, call the Webster County Health Department @ 304-847-5483. So dust off those walking shoes and get ready for “Walk @ Lunch 2014”!!!
