Diane Hart hosts the workshop and will cover
the elements of correct walking for fitness. She will share
guidelines for posture, footwork, legwork, hip action, stride length
and arm work. Heart rates, hydration, walking shoes, warm up and
cool down stretches will also be discussed.

The Pacers — a year-round walking program at
Harry Hoag Elementary School — runs from 4:30-7 p.m. each school day
through March 30. The goal of the program is to help boost physical
activity for local residents and offer safe and affordable walking
options during the winter. BlueShield supports the program and plans
to offer more wellness programs throughout the winter.
