We are happy to tell you that there is a contest and structured walking schedule at Gunning Recreation Center at 16700 Puritas Ave. starting Saturday, August 15th and ending early October. This program will include education, nutrition, and activity and includes an activity toolkit.
A health screening kicks off Be Well West Park, a wellness program of the Cleveland Clinic, local businesses, and local government offices, on Saturday, August 15th from 10am-1pm, and it will screen for cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, and BMI. (Register for a time slot ASAP.) There are weekly walks, which will have health professionals to walk and talk with as special guests. The walks gradually increase their length and will happen rain or shine because there is an indoor track.
There are lots of little prizes along the way to reward you for your participation in this wellness program and you can start at any time. However, only those who are screened on August 15th are likely to be able to win the cash prizes awarded at the Final Weigh-In October 10th at 10am at Gunning, given for personal improvement and participation.
Register by calling 440-331-0618. See more info here: http://bpdc.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Be-Well-West-Park.pdf
