The second annual Houston Mayor’s Walking Club is about to get going.

Sponsored by Healthy Schools Healthy Communities of Texas County (HSHC), the club will last for eight weeks, with an initial session at 5 p.m. today (Monday, April 18) at Rutherford Park (on Westwood Drive next to Houston Memorial Airport). Sessions will continue from 5 to 6:30 p.m. each Monday and Thursday until the end of the eight-week period.

Participants will then be encouraged to continue a walking regimen for another eight weeks.

To register for T-shirts, show up for the initial session.

Organizers indicate a flyer with a walking club schedule on it that was widely circulated incorrectly indicated there would be a celebration dinner June 13. Instead, there will be a special gathering Aug. 8 at the Lone Star Annex on Main Street in downtown Houston.

For more information, call HSHC Community wellness coordinator Earlene Stoops at 417-967-4131.
