Lace up your shoes and let’s get moving! The Myers Health Cabinet is excited to offer you this opportunity to walk together! The goal is fitness and fellowship on the first Saturday of each month at 9am and the locations will vary. The first ‘hike’ will be May 6 at 9a along the Avon/Catawba Creeks Greenway located near Lineberger Park (the parking area is on Fern Forest Dr., across Garrison from the Park). This group is open to all ages! If you are interested, please contact Allison Evanoff.  Allison will contact you with any last minute details and let you know where the next month’s hike will be located!
