If you are not walking because of having to walk alone, concerns about safety or lack of a good place to walk then don't miss this great opportunity. A community walking club will provide motivation, safety in numbers, family involvement, and a social outlet for Adair County Residents.

Research has shown that the benefits of walking for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week can reduce the risk for: heart disease, certain cancers, depression, stress, fatigue, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and much more. There really are so many benefits for such a simple activity!
