One last chance to Winterize Your Hike
Asante Health Promotion’s 10-week Winterize Your Hike challenge is nearing an end, but there’s one last chance to get in some outdoor exercise with a guided hike.
The organized event takes place on Saturday, March 18, on the Britt trails in Jacksonville. Starting time is 11 a.m. sharp. To sign up, email Asante Health Promotion, which will provide you with meeting location and details when you register.
This is a “prove you move” challenge, which means you don’t have to take part in an organized activity to be entered into a random quarterly drawing for prizes valued at $100. You just need to email Health Promotion with proof that your activity equaled a 5K.
The in-person hike, however, offers an opportunity to win an additional prize. To win, you must register in advance through Health Promotion and be present at the end of the hike. Susan Bates, practice manager for Asante Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Ashland, won the drawing a $50 REI gift card by participating in the Medford hike.
You’ll need to complete a liability release and medical clearance form before you can participate. Friends and family will need their doctor’s consent.
