The Partners of St. Joseph's Hospital will help motivate and encourage fitness with the start of the Partners Walking Club beginning in July. The Partners Walking Club is free and will meet every Wednesday at noon at the Duck Pond gazebo in Irvine Park, weather permitting.
Every Wednesday, a member of the Partners of St. Joseph's Hospital will meet for a walk at the Duck Pond. The walk will start as a loop around Old Bear Den Road. The group will stick together for the loop, and afterwards, participants can carry on as they desire.
"The reason we decided to start a Walking Club was not only to encourage fitness, but also to promote connections," says Diane Fish, coordinator of the Partners Walking Club. "We know being active helps promote good mental health and it's easier to do when you have someone else to join you."
The program is part of Chippewa Health Improvement Partnership's Compassionate City initiative.
