Run/Walk in  Gastonia!

 

 

The Gaston Gazette ran an article on the Gastonia Parish Nurse Ministry’s “Run/Walk for God Fitness and Spiritual Wellness” program. The 12-week program, managed by the CaroMont Faith & Health Ministry is helps people complete a 5k walk or run. The article describes the effort:

Participants will learn about proper footwear, injury prevention, basic nutrition, stretching, and core exercises. They will have opportunities to join other group exercise classes in the community, nutrition-oriented grocery store tours, free heart-healthy cooking classes, and many other activities. Each session will include a devotion and prayer time, and there will be guest speakers at several sessions. (Photo: Gaston Gazette)
