Fifty Lake County residents have already signed up for Let’s Walk Florida, and more people are invited to participate in the free virtual program sponsored by the University of Florida IFAS Extension.
UF/IFAS Extension Lake County Family and Consumer Science Agent Lori Johnson says Let’s Walk Florida! is her first community project to coordinate as Lake County’s new agent. The 10-week program is geared to help Floridians of all ages and activity levels to achieve and maintain health while remaining socially distant during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Educational material on physical activity strategies for improving your mental and physical well-being, weight management and tips on reducing the risk of chronic disease will be emailed to participants.
