Healthy Habits: Walk Catawba

— Written By

Registration is now being accepting for 4-H Healthy Habits: Walk Catawba. The 9-week program is for youth ages 9-17. The program includes a Monday afternoon online educational program from 3–4 p.m. to kick-off the week. The group will meet each week from June 1 through July 27, 2020. The Monday afternoon session will include a discussion of healthy living topics and weekly challenges with topics such as healthy eating, decision-making, stress management, and more. Youth are encouraged to walk each day and record their steps/miles. When youth reach 31 miles and complete at least 6 online learning sessions they will receive a Walk Catawba t-shirt, with the paid registration. Parents/adults are welcome to participate along with their children.

Two registration options are available. The $35 ticket includes a pedometer and t-shirt. A free “general admission” ticket is available for those who want to participate in the program and online session, but it does NOT include the shirt or pedometer. However, a limited number of pedometers will be available to check-out from the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Catawba County office and use for the program duration.

Registration is being accepted through Eventbrite. The deadline to register is May 20. You may pay by credit card or mail a check to the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Catawba County, PO Box 389, Newton, NC 28658.
