In honor of National Walking Day, our annual community-led walking groups are launching this month! Joining a walking group is a great way to stay active and meet others living in your area.
Interested in joining a walking group?
Staying active and having social support are keys to lifelong health. Since 2018, Tillamook County Wellness volunteer walking groups have made it possible for hundreds of community members to get active outdoors and connect with others.
Leading or participating in a walking group is a fun way to get healthy, meet new people, stay motivated and be inspired. Walking group season launches on the first Wednesday in April and runs through October. Most groups walk outdoors, rain or shine.
Find a group near you or consider starting your own! Contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to start your own walking group.
