"Move 2 Health" Campaign Sponsors Walk at Darden Towe Park

Posted: Updated:

It is time for Charlottesville to get moving. The "Move 2 Health" campaign is sponsoring a walk Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in Darden Towe Park.

The goal is to get the community up and moving in a healthy direction by getting more exercise and eating right. Thursday's walk will show people they have great places in Albemarle County to do that.

"There's the part of health and fitness that is sweating and getting your pulse up and everything, but there's other values to getting out in places like this that are measurable, that have to do with your relaxation, reduction of stress, and well-being," said Dan Mahon, county trail planner.

The walks will continue every Thursday for the next three weeks.
