Walkers needed for joining an new old walking group

The Hilltop Health Ministries is interested in restarting the “Walking in the Way” group that walked the trail on South Side a few years ago.

The walkers followed a route that began at the South 18th Street entrance to the trail and went for as long as people wanted to walk. The walking program was for whole person wellness-balancing and energizing body and soul.

“We walk together rather than compete. We encourage each other and keep each other accountable. We will add up all our miles to reach a “destination.” It is more fun to walk with a group of people,” said Hilltop Health Ministries Parish Nurse Debbie Koch, RN.

They plan to meet at least two times weekly- perhaps Tuesdays and Thursdays - at a time of day when most could meet. In the past this has been in the early evening. Ms. Koch plans to begin this 8-10 week program after Labor Day.

Any one needing more information, or interested in participating in this walk, should call Ms. Koch at 412-381-8300 ext. 20.
