REACH has a new walking program tracking our steps around the shores of Lake Superior, 350 miles to go all the way around. The walking program will start December 6, 2017 and end on March 31, 2018. Pedometers will be given out if you need one. The Niiwin Akeaa gym will be open at 10:30am to 1:30pm Monday through Friday to allow those to walk indoors. To participate in the program track your daily steps along with your water intake. There are four segments. After each segment if your daily goals are met you can turn in your monthly log sheet to Popcorn or Mary Dee and receive an incentive. We will also be tracking where you are around Lake Superior at the health center. This will be displayed where everyone can see the progress of those who join. #kbichealth
