Greene Walks

GreeneWalks Contest

The Greene County Rural Health would like to congratulate all of the this year’s Greene Walks participants. The contest came to an end on October 26th after participants logged thousands of steps in the beautiful fall weather, got lots of sleep, ate lots of veggies, tried new modes of exercise and much more. Here is what some participants said…

“The walking and exercising parts were easy.  It was the limiting sugar that was a challenge. Never realized how much sugar some things have until I had to limit it to 25 g. Eye opening and very beneficial!”

“I am almost sorry to see the end coming. On days I can’t walk outside I have taken to walking up and down the aisles of Lowe’s and Home Depot. I am also lucky enough to be able to walk the track at the High school on my lunch hour. My husband says I am outpacing him too. Love this program, thank you.”

“Thanks, this gives me motivation to keep moving everyday”

“This has been a great experience and I am proud of the fact that I have committed to this and out of it have a great new exercise routine!”

Once again, congratulations to all participants.  This year’s winners are…
