Women Out Walking Kick Off March 24

Posted on Friday Feb 17, 2012

It’s that time again! The 4th Annual Women Out Walking (W.O.W.) 12-week program will kick off on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 8 a.m. at ETHS, Auditorium, 1600 Dodge Ave. We have a fun-filled program planned. We will equip you with upto-date fitness knowledge and a free pedometer to track your progress. There will also be free health screenings and fitness class samplers.

W.O.W. is focused on helping women of all ages to achieve their health goals in a supportive environment, but men and families are invited to attend walks and program activities. Women Out Walking (W.O.W.) is a 12 week walking program designed to encourage women in Evanston to lead healthier lifestyles and become more physically active. Using walking as the foundation, individuals and teams of women are asked to track their steps and seek to improve their activity level on a weekly basis.

Additionally, participants are invited to attend workshops that provide tips and education in the areas of nutrition and overall women’s health issues. Last, but certainly not least, walkers are invited to explore a variety of physical activity alternatives, including tai chi, yoga, Nia, dance, and other exciting exercise opportunities.
