Weston walking club set for June.

The beneficial mental and physical effects of walking are well known. In June, the Humber River Family Health Team is holding a series of 60-minute Tuesday and Thursday walks along the Humber. The idea is to help Weston FHT patients with their health and fitness goals but anyone can participate.

Entry requirements: participants must undergo a brief health screening one or two weeks prior to the walks to determine that vital signs like blood pressure are satisfactory. Screenings are at no cost to participants.

According to organizers, “We will walk for 60 minutes. 30 minutes reserved for cool down stretches, education and light refreshments.”.

Walks will begin at the Humber River Family Health Team’s location at 2050 Weston Road (the old Post Office building).

Dates:  June 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28

Time for all walks: 1-2:30pm

Phone 416 740 2810 for more information and to book a screening.
