Last week marked the half-way point for our Winchester Weigh-Down participants. How are we doing? The group consists of more than 100 people and together a reported 466 pounds have been lost! Way to go!
If you haven’t been a part of the program, pick one of the sponsoring locations and weigh-in. There’s always time to start a good health routine.
You can also join us as we begin our Walk With Us on Wednesdays. Starting today and also Wednesday, March 16, from noon until 1 p.m., join Cara O’Neill of the Clark County Health Department as we walk around College Park (in case of inclement weather, the walk will be on the inside track).
