Walking is a lifestyle exercise because it is easy to fit into your daily routine. It provides many health benefits and it is a great way to lose weight - and keep it off. A person who walks 10,000 steps a day will burn between 2000 and 3500 extra calories per week. The CommonHealth Committee challenges you to walk 10,000 steps per day!
To get you moving, Sue Perry, CommonHealth Regional Coordinator, has generously given us a limited number of pedometers for October's Walking for Fitness and Health challenge. To get your pedometer and learn more, join us, Layne Compton and Cathy Swain, for October's CommonHealth Walking Challenge event. There will be two kick-off meetings. Hopefully one will fit your schedule.

Join us to find out more details and to learn just how far 10,000 steps will take you. Bring your walking shoes if you would like to participate in a short walk after the meeting! We hope to see you there!
Note: The CommonHealth Walking Challenge meetings on October 1st and 2nd are CommonHealth events. When planning any participation in an activity or event, remember that any activity is not intended to be done during the employee's normal work hours unless the employee is on an approved break, at lunch, or the activity is specifically scheduled as an event in which the employee's supervisor has given the authority for the employee to attend. If the activity is an official CommonHealth event, Virginia Western employees who are scheduled to work during the event are authorized to take up to one hour of paid time per month in order to participate provided their supervisor permits the employee to attend.
