Start stepping toward a healthier future with UF/IFAS Pasco County Extension, which is now offering a 12-week walking program called Let’s Walk Florida.
The program is designed to encourage community members to team up in pursuit of a lifelong walking habit.
Anyone can participate in the program aimed at promoting physical wellness.
Walking reduces the risk of heart disease and some cancers, improves blood pressure, blood sugar levels, energy, mood and more.
Walkers can choose from health, fitness and performance tracks.
And, participants can work toward goals at their own time and pace, reporting their results to the Pasco County Extension Office.
Registration for the program is $10 per person, and all ages are welcome.
Participants can sign up as teams or individually, or request to be assigned to a team.
The first 50 registrants will receive a pedometer and water bottle.
UF/IFAS will host a Let’s Walk Florida Kickoff Event on July 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd.
