Join the Competition and Get Walking!

Kirby Pines began a walking program in April with a little competition to see who gets out the most to walk. Participants were encouraged to walk outside in teams with safe distancing. The Rolling Walkers Team went out almost every day in their electric-powered chairs. People are walking everywhere from the lakes to the garden, gazebo and trails through the garden homes. Our 17 teams have put in more than 500 walking sessions in 5 weeks. Way to Go!!!! Here are a few of our teams of the week that were chosen randomly. Here are a few of our walking teams:

This has been so much fun that we have decided to go for a second round. We will start on Monday, June 8 and end Sunday, July 26. Outside temperatures may be in the 90’s, so plan to walk early morning or late in the day or enjoy the air-conditioned halls of Kirby Pines. Remember to use sunscreen, wear a hat, sunglasses, and like I always say, DRINK MORE WATER.
