Walk by Faith walking group open to all

LOCK HAVEN — The Walk by Faith program is in full swing, and new participants are always welcome.

A Penn State Cooperative Extension wellness program, Walk by Faith involves group walking on Wednesday evenings. Five different paths are used on a rotating basis.

The faith-based program encourages health eating and simple exercise, like walking, with the goals of helping participants maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of developing cancer. Participants set and track their personal health goals.

The program includes several educational sessions by Laurie Welch of the Extension office.

New participants receive a pedometer as well as Calorie King calorie, fat and carbohydrate counters.

Those interested are asked to call Fran Decker at 570-748-4302.
