Hillsborough County Aging Services is kicking off a new monthly exercise and wellness program for local senior citizens starting in April called Let’s Move!
The program features themed 1-mile walks, snacks and related events that will take place at a different county senior or nutrition center each month.
Aging Services has partnered with the magazine Lifestyles AFTER 50 and healthcare organizations Freedom Health/Optimum Health Care, Chapters Health System and Wellmed to make this program possible. Anyone over 50 years of age can participate.
To join in, attendees can register by picking up a registration form from a participating center; printing it from the Aging Services website and mailing it in; or signing up the morning of each walk.
There is a one-time registration fee of $5, which includes all nine walks.
All walks start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m.
There will be complimentary snacks on a first-come, first-served basis for each event, and sponsors will be available to discuss their services. Other activities, such as warm-up sessions, music or health discussions, will be offered the day of the walk.
The first walk will tkae place Tuesday, April 9 at the Brandon Senior Center at Davis Park, 612 N. Parsons Ave., Brandon.
