Walking is a relatively easy form of exercise for people of all ages and abilities. It doesn’t cost much to participate, has a low risk of injury and many physical and mental benefits including increased energy and stamina, feeling and looking better, and burning calories to either lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
The IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Foundation has been successful in initiating walking groups for the public and within small neighborhoods. If there is sufficient interest in your neighborhood circles to start a walking club, please contact Matt Cox, community outreach associate, IU Health BMH Foundation at 765.751.6346 or via e-mail at email@example.com. We can provide you and your group with resources and encouragement to get started!
