Meet other local people who are interested in walking for fitness! We'll meet up to walk around the beautiful trails of St. Patrick’s County Park. In addition to walking, St. Joseph County Parks has teamed up with Memorial BrainWorks to offer a variety of brain boosting activities. The walks will each be approximately 40 minutes long so a good amount of oxygen gets fed to your brain. Paper and pencil activities will focus on a different type of skill your brain performs, for example, attention, speed of processing, or memory. Active walking on some uneven surfaces, socializing with others, spending time in nature, and actively giving your brain a little challenge all are shown to boost your health and wellness. Registration and payment are required by September 11. (Minimum 5; Maximum 12). RSVP to 574-654-3155
