Get Walkin’ starts Monday

Purdue Extension and Purdue School of Nursing are sponsoring the Get Walkin’ program to encourage local residents to get on their feet and move.

The free, email-based walking program begins Monday. It offers a chance to be motivated to walk to feel energized, add daily physical activity, get social and reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Participants receive 16 emails, two per week for the first month and one per week for eight weeks providing encouragement and tips.

Registration is due by Friday.
