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.
