EOI – Walking Group
Lovely Spring weather means beautiful morning and/or afternoon walks. If you are interested in joining the CRC on a casual walk once a week or once a fortnight, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9863 4829. With enough interest we will register with the ‘Heart Foundations Walking’ Program. Did you know? A study of 1800 walkers in 14 countries showed outdoor walking groups improved their members’ blood pressure, resting heart rate, cholesterol, body fat and mood.
