Walk and Talk events aim to get residents moving: Worcester County Health Department to host community conversation walks.
(Snow Hill, MD)- Are you interested in walking and exploring local, walkable places? The Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) is hosting a series of community Walk and Talk events starting this July. All events are free and open to the public.
Walk and Talk events take place from 12-12:30 p.m., July through September 2018:
• Every first Monday in Ocean Pines (White Horse Park)
• Every second Tuesday in Pocomoke (starting at the Discovery Center)
• Every fourth Wednesday in Berlin (starting at Atlantic Hotel)
• Every third Thursday in Snow Hill (starting at the Daily Brew Coffee Shop)
Walk and Talk aims to get Worcester residents up and moving, while having important conversations about where to walk in the county, how to start a walking group, ways we can improve the walkability of our community, and more. All Walk and Talk events will be hosted by WCHD staff and will take places in both the south and north ends of the county.
“Walking with a good friend or a group is a great way to fit in physical activity while chatting about ways to improve the health of our county,” said Crystal Bell, Chronic Disease and Tobacco Supervisor for Worcester County Health Department. “So grab a friend or neighbor, lace up your favorite walking shoes, and join us for Walk and Talk this summer!”
Following the summer Walk and Talk events, Worcester Health Department will schedule additional meetings for the rest of the year, based on community feedback and participation.
