Family Walking Event Tomorrow At Magnuson

Jessica, a University of Washington nursing student, sent us email to share with the community about a walking event  tomorrow at 2pm at Magnuson Park.

The event called "My Heart, My Life, My Walking Club" is in partnership with the American Heart Association, and will not only be a fun family walking event "good for your heart and health," but there will also be fun activities for children, fun give-away items for participants, opportunity to meet new families and a chance to "experience the great outdoors in beautiful Magnuson Park" the invite says.

Tomorrow's event is the kick-off event,  for the newly established Northeast Family Walking Club, that the UW nursing students have established that will continue to meet throughout the quarter. It is also part of a larger nationwide American Heart Association Walking Club of Communities. 

Jessica told us "It is a free event, just to get people together to walk, meet new people, have fun."

Meet at Picnic Shelter #3 at Magnuson Park, which is located at the play area, north side of the foccer Fields.

Here is an online map of the walking route.

Sign up online here or call AHA at (206) 632-6881.
