The Kewaunee County Public Health Department is inviting residents to lace up their shoes and walk with their neighbors as their new wellness initiative gets underway in May. Part of “Get Healthy Kewaunee County,” the first part of the program will feature central locations in Luxemburg and Algoma to get outside and walking. Public Health Nurse Cindy Kinnard says the idea came out of their recent Community Health Assessment that showed residents want to get active, but not alone.
Walkers can attend any of the weekly groups which meet Tuesdays at Harvest Community Church in Luxemburg or Thursdays at the Algoma Community Wellness Center. Get Healthy Kewaunee County will add a Kewaunee site in the near future.
