Walking for Wellness Kicks Off September 6


The fifth year of the Walking for Wellness program kicks off this Tuesday, September 6, with a 6 p.m. walk at Sand Plum Trail at Rader Park in Weatherford.

Patti Harper, one of the walk organizers, said everyone is encouraged to participate in the fun walk and register for the prize drawings (five $100 Walmart gift cards will be drawn) and free giveaways. A new t-shirt is also available for $15.  Walkers of all ages are encouraged to attend the free event.

“Join other health seekers in taking steps to a healthier way of life,” Harper said.
