Fitness Fridays begin May 17

 

Looking for a way to “jump start” your weekend activities? Leaders at Parkview LaGrange Hospital invite the community to join them every Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. for a two-mile walk around the hospital’s half-mile walking track.

“Fitness Fridays” are the product of a partnership between Parkview LaGrange Hospital and the Cole Family YMCA and are sponsored by the YMCA and Parkview LiVe. Every Friday at 4 p.m. – rain or shine – from May 17 through early October, hospital leaders are looking forward to walking with community members. Everyone will meet on the south lawn of the Medical Office Building on the hospital’s campus to begin their walk.

“We’ll be registering walkers on site at the walk. Anyone who participates in 10 Fitness Friday walks will receive a free t-shirt,” added Jen Will, the hospital’s foundation coordinator. “If you have access to a computer, we encourage you to go to parkview. WellnessSteps4Life.com and register there. The website provides an easy way to track your weekly activity.” 

“Sometimes just a little camaraderie can help each of us stay focused on getting in some regular, healthy activity,” said Parkview LaGrange Hospital President Rob Myers. “We’re hoping these Fitness Friday walks will become second nature – something fun to look forward to as we move from the work week into the weekend.”
