Join the Health Department Walk N' Talk Group!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Joining a walking group is one of the best ways to start and maintain a healthy walking habit. Aside from the benefits of positive peer pressure, a walking group is safer, more fun, social, and something you’ll probably look forward to each and every time that you meet. Your group can be as simple as a lunchtime walk with office friends or more organized like the Move Yourself! Salem County walking club that meets and walks at scheduled places and times. To join our walking club, please see the schedule below or call 935-7510 ext. 8302 for more information.
