HealthySV Winter Walking Program
Healthy SV invites residents to walk the halls and/or gyms of various participating community buildings for free throughout the winter months by participating in our popular Winter Walking Program. Walking indoors while the roads and sidewalks are covered with ice and snow is safer and, if you can walk for 30 minutes each day, you may feel and look better for the warm days to come!
For more information, please call 487.3890.
