The St. Clair County Healthy Lifestyles Workgroup is encouraging everyone to participate on Wednesday, May 1, for the American Diabetes Association’s ‘Get Fit Don’t Sit Day.’ Get up and move at least once every 30 minutes throughout the workday and take a walk anywhere—your neighborhood, at the park, at work, or join a sponsored walking site! 

There are several sponsored walking sites throughout the county and special gatherings at 12 noon at McLaren Port Huron’s courtyard, at 12:30 p.m. at Lake Huron Medical Center’s North Campus, 3 p.m. in the lobby of the Port Huron Municipal Office Center, or at 4:30 p.m. at the River Walk at the north entrance arch.

All events are free. For more information, contact the YMCA of the Blue Water Area at 810-987-6400. Look for updates on our Facebook page: Blue Water Walking Club. Kick-start your health this spring and Get Fit Don’t Sit!
