Walking has been proven to provide endless health benefits for seniors, including reduced risk of obesity, heart disease and stroke! The West Fargo Park District is excited to invite older adults to mix things up from their normal workout routine and join in on an active morning at Rendezvous Park.
On Wednesday, May 26, the West Fargo Park District's A Walk in the Park will encourage seniors to be healthy and active by participating in a 2.2 mile walk to 40th Ave West Park and back or stay in Rendezvous and walk around the pond for a 1.5 mile walk all on paved paths. This walk features a commemorative t-shirt, refreshments/light snacks and music. This event is FREE, and all participants that pre-register by May 11 will receive a commemorative t-shirt. For more information and to register, visit wfparks.org.
We want to thank our community sponsors: Eventide Senior Living Communities, Ethos Home Care and Hospice, Apex Physical Therapy and Wellness and No rthland PACE.
