Community Walking Project Gets Underway

Utica, NY (WIBX) – More than 100 participants from seven area agencies and the community will be taking part in a fitness program designed to reduce health disparities among underserved women and girls.

The program is being funded throught a 25-hundred dollar grant which was awarded to the Oneida County Health Department by the Department of Health and Human Services Regional Office on Women’s Health.

“A Better Me: Fit, Happy and Healthy” is a 90-day period of counseling on proper nutrition and physical activity, with participants walking steps recorded with pedometers issued to them by the Health Department.

At the end of the program, the team logging the most steps will be awarded a prize, along with the top four individuals from the seven teams.
