Eventbrite link

Learn all about the benefits of walking as a mode of transportation, how to stay safe while walking, and tips for incorporating walking into your daily routine. This in-person event is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow walkers and start your journey towards a more active commute. Bring comfortable walking shoes and poles if you use them. While we meet at the CGC, it is essentially an outdoor event, walking along the Hamilton Blvd trail (indoors if it is raining).
