St. Clair County Medical Society Launches Blue Water Walking Club

The St. Clair County Medical Society is interested in improving the health of our community by promoting walking clubs throughout our county. Brisk walking 30 minutes five days a week reduces the risk of developing diabetes by 58%, decreases cardiovascular disease and obesity. People who walk are at lower risk of breast cancer and colon cancer. For people with osteoarthritis, walking improves mobility and function. In addition, walking improves psychological well- being and self-esteem.  The St. Clair County Medical Society Foundation has launched the Blue Water Walking Club program in partnership with the YMCA to improve the health of our community. Each walking group must have at least 5 to 10 participants and must walk 30 minutes three to five days a week for 6 to 8 weeks. All participants will receive health information on the benefits of walking as well as a listing of outdoor recreational areas in their neighborhood. (con't)
