Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2.
The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session.
On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session.
Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance.
There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Pre-registration is not required.
Walking for Wellness is made available through the cooperation of Jacksonville School District #117, First Christian Church, and Passavant Area Hospital.
October 2 (Monday) 7:00 am - March 30 (Friday) 1:00 pm
