9th annual 'Let's Walk & Talk' event for women takes place Saturday
COOS BAY, Ore. – The public is invited to put on their walking shoes and head for Mingus Park this weekend for the ninth annual “Let's Walk and Talk” event on Saturday.
The event is put on by Coos County Women's Health Coalition.
This year local medical professionals will also be walking and talking about various topics.
The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles for women in Coos County.
Last year more than 250 walkers participated in the event.
"We all need to exercise more for our health,” Frances Smith with Women’s Health Coalition says, “it's really preventive of many diseases, as well as to manage many diseases. You can walk at whatever level you want. If you're able to just walk once around the pond, that's fine. Just come and enjoy the camaraderie with other women."
The event is from 9--11:30 a.m. Saturday at Mingus Park in Coos Bay.
