Walking club begins

A new walking club for senior adults will meet from 9 to 9:30 a.m. every Thursday in July at the Community Recreation Center, 1905 N. Peart Road. The club is hosted by the University of Arizona, Pinal AZ Health Zone of the Cooperative Extension, Pinal County Public Health and Casa Grande Community Recreation Center. The goal of this project is to connect with seniors and offer them a social support group to encourage physical activity. Attendees do not need to be a member of the Casa Grande Community Recreation Center to participate. Few older adults in the U.S. achieve the minimum recommended amount of physical activity. Lack of physical activity contributes to many chronic diseases that occur in older adults as well as obesity. For substantial health benefits, the guidelines recommend that most older adults participate in at least 10 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity. For more information and to register, contact Mary Gonzales, community outreach assistant, at marygonzales@arizona.edu.
