Sanford Walmart Joins the Healthy Weight Initiative
Looking for a way to be active during the snow, wind, rain, or heat? Partners for Healthier Communities, a program of Goodall Hospital, the Sanford-Springvale YMCA and the Sanford Walmart, all members of the Goodall Healthy Weight Initiative, invite walkers to join the kick off of Wellness at Walmart at 6:00am on Monday, March 15, 2010. The first 25 walkers will qualify for raffle items including 1-week passes to the Sanford Springvale YMCA.
The Wellness at Walmart program is open to walkers from 6:00am – 8:00am seven days a week. Walkers can exercise at their own pace and choose the number of laps they want to complete (1 lap of the store = ¼ mile; 4 laps = 1 mile). In addition to indoor walking, shoppers will also notice healthy nutrition tips posted in the produce section.
The Goodall Healthy Weight Initiative is comprised of community members and organizations interested in promoting a healthy community through physical activity and good nutrition.
