Start Off Your New Year on the Right Foot

Now that winter is here, it's no time to hibernate! Get out and get active with Tuesday Morning Strolls.

On the first Tuesday of each month, walk leaders will guide participants on an easy paced walk at various destinations around Martinsville and Henry County.

Participants will receive a punch card to register for a drawing upon the completion of 4 walks by June 2nd and 5 walks by December 1st. Two drawings will be held each time: one for adults and one for seniors.

All walks begin at 9am and last for approximately 45 minutes. There is no charge. Walkers are asked to dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Bringing a bottle of water is also recommended.

Why should you walk?
Studies show that taking a 60 minute walk can burn over 200 calories.
Walking with a group is a great way to network & make new friends.
Walking outdoors is an excellent form of stress relief.
