Join with members, friends, and neighbors of all ages at Plymouth this month to begin the journey – one step at a time – as we kick off our first annual “Walk the Walk Healthy Steps Challenge” at Lake Merritt on Saturday, January 26 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. We’ll start the day at 9:00 a.m. with a heart-healthy light breakfast in Plymouth’s Fireside Room before gathering at 10:00 a.m. at the Oakland Pergola and Colonnade at the northeast corner of Lake Merritt to begin our first-ever church-wide healthwalk challenge. Make plans now to come out to get moving in 2013!
As part of January’s Health & Wellness “The Whole Body” theme, we’re inviting our members, friends, and neighbors to “walk the walk” on the road to better health, not just “talk the talk.” Enjoy the stunning views of downtown Oakland from the banks of Lake Merritt in a 5K walk challenge. Get a complimentary pedometer to help track your steps and enjoy a refreshing bottle of spring water as you set off to walk the 3.1 mile loop. Set your own pace to reach your personal milestone, whether it’s 1,000 steps to start, the 2,000 steps to your first mile, or 6,000 steps for the complete course. Our goal for the “Walk the Walk” is to have members and friends of Plymouth reach 100,000 steps on January 26!
