Join us each Monday beginning April 1, 2013, to take in the beauty of Blithewold’s exquisite gardens & grounds and get fit at the same time! During this FREE session open to the public, participants will have the choice of doing a fitness walk throughout the grounds, or participate in a fit-camp.
Together with Blithewold and Kara Rocha, Owner of Nutrition 4 Life we welcome you to join the national Let’s Move campaign to get healthy this spring. All levels welcome, as you can challenge yourself in fit-camp, walk with the group or at your own pace - just come along and join the fun!
We will meet in the Blithewold’s Parking Lot, near the Carriage House. To kick off our new Fit-Camp, we will offer free healthy tea and shake samples as well as fruit after our first walk on Monday, April 1.
Walks will be held every Monday through September, 2013. We ask first time participants to arrive 10 minutes early to complete a liability waiver.
This event is FREE! Donations are welcome to support Blithewold’s Educational Programming.
