BURLINGTON, ON

 

Walking is a healthy exercise.  It is also a time when you can think and wonder at all the things we have going for us and worry a little about the problems.

Walking with a friend is one of the most civil things a person can do.

Just out for a walk.

Burlington is encouraging members of the community to take steps toward better health with Just Walk Hamilton-Burlington, an outdoor community walking program led by local healthcare professionals and funded in part through the City’s Neighbourhood Community Matching Fund.

Join registered Kinesiologist Jordan Kilpatrick-Smith for a free, fun and supervised walk on Saturday, March 23 at 9 a.m. through Nelson Park and Sherwood Forest Park. Kilpatrick-Smith and the Just Walk team will meet community members at the Nelson Park parking lot located behind the Nelson Arena near the baseball diamonds (4183 New St., Burlington).

The walk will begin with a short educational talk titled, “Healthy Weight Loss to Gain Time, Money and Energy” followed by a guided walk at your own pace. Each walk is open to all abilities and pre-registration is not required.

Join the Just Walk group’s email list at justwalk-hb.weebly.com for information on upcoming walk dates and locations.

The group will be hosting 12 walks in Burlington between February and September.
