Starting Monday, Nov. 13, outdoor walking enthusiasts can get out of the dark and the rain by participating in ShoWalk.

Presented by Kent4Health and accesso ShoWare, ShoWalk is a free indoor walking opportunity on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. at the ShoWare Center, 625 W. James St. ShoWalk, now in its eight year, continues through June 13.

“It’s such a great place to walk indoors, with two levels for walking and for all modalities,” said Kent4Health program coordinator Pamela Clark. “There’s a full loop on the upper level for walkers that prefer a faster pace and a horseshoe on the lower level for those with strollers or walking aids. There are also stairs for those interested in getting additional cardio or to change up their workout.”

Other features include wellness days on the second Monday and Wednesday of each month offering free blood pressure screenings, a hydration station and other health related services.

There is no charge to participate, however we do ask that you sign in when you arrive. Our friendly volunteers will be there to greet you and answer any questions. More information is available at Kent4Health.com or by calling 253-856-4968.
