Graham Walks began in 2006 with a grant from the Health and Wellness Trust Fund. Graham Recreation & Parks wishes to continue to gain new interest in the program and encourage past participants to join us once again this spring. Graham Walks is a self-motivating walking program designed to inspire you to stay active. We encourage all participants to set their own goal for steps per day, rather it be 7,500 or 10,000. Graham Recreation & Parks is here to help you achieve your goal by meeting with you once a week on Wednesdays at Shamrock Nutrition from 8:00am – 2:00pm & 5:30pm – 7:00pm (subject to change). A list of places to walk in Graham and downtown walking route maps will be available online on April 1st. Be sure to explore the downtown area to gain steps! Fun fitness swag will also be handed out to participants turning in their weekly Walking Logs, while supplies last (the means of distribution may change). The program lasts for 5 weeks beginning on Wednesday, April 29 and ending on Wednesday, June 3.
How do you track your steps for your Walking Log?
Graham Recreation & Parks will provide FREE pedometers to registered participants (while supplies last) or you can use any fitness tracking device that you may already have (i.e. Fitbit, Apple Watch, Galaxy Watch, Garmin, etc.).
