Wright State University’s Healthy Steps program - an effort to help faculty, staff and members of the public stay fit and heart healthy over the winter by walking - is returning for its second year. Walking will take place on the arena concourse, in which one lap is approximately one-fourth mile.
Participants will be given a pedometer at their first walk - enabling them to keep track of all their steps - and be encouraged to wear it each time they walk. Walkers will sign in before beginning and log their steps when finished. The individual with the most cumulative steps during the program will win the title and receive a special prize. There will be other chances to win or earn prizes each week as well.
Representatives of Miami Valley Hospital will be on site on Thursday evenings to provide health information and free screenings such as blood pressure checks.
Participants should enter through Gate 3.
Healthy steps, sponsored by Miami Valley Hospital, will be offered most Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. from January 8th through March 28th (some walks may be canceled due to other events at the arena or weather closures). Walkers can drop in any time between 5 and 7 p.m. Walking is free and open to the public. Adults 18 and older only, please.
