With just two days to go, nearly 1,100 walkers are still going strong in the Walk90 Challenge. The Challenge began on October 1st and is set to wrap up Dec. 29th – just in time to ring in a healthy New Year.
Each week, as we have drawn a winner from active walkers and talked with members of 100+ teams, we’ve heard inspiring stories. Many participants have found a renewed passion for being active; others are walking to help recover from injuries; some families are reconnecting through walks; and many work teams are reporting that they’re increasing morale, building relationships and improving health while walking together.
Whatever the reason, a walk is always a good idea. As Hippocrates said, “Walking is man’s best medicine.”
As we get ready to ring in the new year, it’s good to pause, reflect and count our blessings of the past year and also see how we can do and be better next year. Moving more and eating healthier always seems to top the list. If these top your list too, we hope you’ll join us.
Healthy Central Florida invites you to walk with us in one of our weekly walks. We also bring in national health experts for free lectures; provide periodic mini-grants to improve health; and help educate and advocate for better health for all. We hope you’ll join us as we walk together – and work together to make our communities the healthiest in the nation.
And…watch for the announcement in January of the winners of the Fall Walk90 Challenge (the person with the most steps wins a one-year membership to RDV Sportsplex!). We will also announce details about our Spring Walk90 Challenge – details coming soon!
