The West Milford Health Department, in partnership with Chilton Medical Center, has announced the return of the “Wawayanda Walking Club.”

Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, crisp fall air and get some exercise. Did you know simply by walking regularly you can burn calories, strengthen muscles and bones, lower blood pressure, cut cholesterol levels, improve sleep, reduce stress and the risk of heart disease, diabetes and more. Strollers and seniors are welcome!

This six-week walking club is free and is open to families or individuals in West Milford. The walking club will take place on Friday mornings, from 10 to 11 a.m., Sept. 12 through Oct. 24.

The group will walk at Wawayanda State Park, 885 Warwick Turnpike, Hewitt. Participants will receive a walking log book and health education materials. The goal of the Walking Club is to educate residents on all of the healthy benefits of walking and make exercise a community event. This is also a great opportunity to get out and walk with a little one in the stroller (a jogging stroller is recommended.)

Registration is required; call Marianne Stillman, West Milford health educator, at 201-248-4551 or email marianne.stillman@atlantichealth.org.

Lace up those sneakers and get walking!
