Shed Pounds with a 5K Walk

April 10, 2012, Volume 58, No. 29

pedometerWalking is a great way to manage your weight and stay fit—not to mention lower your blood pressure, cholesterol and risk of diabetes. So throw on your sneakers and join us for a 5K walk (3.1 miles) through University City on April 27.

We’ll meet on College Green in front of the Ben Franklin statue at noon. The course will run from Locust Walk to 40th Street, through the paths of Woodlands Cemetery, and back to the starting point. All faculty and staff are welcome to participate, no matter what your fitness level. We’ll have volunteer walkers placed throughout the group to help keep a steady pace and make sure no one is left behind.

You’ll also have the chance to learn more about the Penn Walking Program and become a member. If you’re already a member, you’re encouraged to wear your “I’m a Penn Walker” t-shirt and bring your pedometer.
