Bond County Senior Center Offers New Walking Program

The Bond County Senior Center is now offering a walking program called “Wait Walkers.” Executive Director Anna Oestreich said the group was named for Wait Park.

“We walk every Tuesday and Thursday morning, starting at 8 o’clock.” Oestreich told WGEL. “We walk from the Senior Center on the paths at Wait Park. It takes about 20-25 minutes and there are places to sit down if you want to do kind of a half-walk. But, it’s a pretty easy walk. It’s flat and not too difficult, so it’s great for beginners or for people who have gotten out of the habit of walking as exercise and want to start again.”

Oestreich said anyone is welcome to join the walking group. For more information, call the Senior Center at 664-1465.
