Shoals Walk Across Alabama continues... COME JOIN US ON TUESDAY EVENINGS!
Would you like to be one of 20 to "Walk Across Alabama"? It's easier than you might imagine – especially with the help of Shoals Community Clinic, during our walking events.
Tuesdays from 5-6pm, weekly... February 6th through April 17th... at Highland Baptist Family Life Center, on the 2nd floor.
SHOALS WALK ACROSS ALABAMA is being held during the Scale Back Alabama challenge, a state initiative to address obesity. During the kickoff / opening registration event we enjoyed a free Zumba Dance class taught by Sara Beth Flippo. There are also group walks offered weekly as part of Fresh Air Family, a state program that encourages outdoor family activities. Participants are being challenged to walk the distance across the state of Alabama.
The program began in February and continues into April. Participants received a pedometer at the kickoff event, and incentive prizes are offered at various points. The clinic is partnering with the UNA’s Health Education Department to provide motivation to participants. We are also partnering with 2 churches in the area that have indoor tracks. Our goal is to have at least 20 participants, and to promote the event and active lifestyle to our community at large. We hope this event will encourage people to continue walking throughout the year. Let us know if you'd like to be a part of this walking event!
