Outdoor Walking Group participants take advantage of a recent sunny day to exercise together.

 

On Saturday, April 9, Turning Point Community Development Corporation hosted an Outdoor Walking Group at the Henderson Family YMCA. There were 21 participants in attendance. 

The walking group meets on the second Saturday of every month to encourage community members to be physically active to live a healthy life. Turning Point CDC encourages individuals and families of all ages to join them from 8-9 a.m. to walk the track at their own pace. Pedometers are provided to track steps, number of miles completed and number of calories burned.

The monthly Outdoor Walking Group is a component of Turning Point CDC’s Healthy Lifestyles Program which is dedicated to keeping the community healthy and well, spanning nutrition, cooking, physical activity and gardening. 

All are welcome to join the group for upcoming walking groups on May 14, June 11, July 9, Aug. 13, Sept. 10 and Oct. 8 at 8 a.m. No registration is required, and any questions can be sent to info@turningpointcdc.org.
