Looking for a group and some extra support to help you get walking more?  There are a number of walking clubs and groups in the area.

Resources:

Walking…What a Feeling – Whether you’re a seasoned walker or looking to get started, the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) has developed a handy online app and downloadable guidebook to help you make the most of your walking plans.  These handy resources will provide you with information on the benefits of walking, tips for getting started and easy stretches to get your body prepared for walking.  Plus – both the guidebook and the app include calendars for those who like to plan and keep track of their efforts.  (En français – L’application et le guide ‘La santé…ça marche’).
