The kickoff of the Princeton Start! Walking Program, an initiative to promote the health benefits of walking, is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 25, on the Frist Campus Center south lawn.
Highlighted by a one-mile fun walk around campus beginning at 12:15 p.m., the event also will feature health screenings, information about the benefits of walking, and merchandise and discounts from area businesses.
The Princeton Start! Walking Program is sponsored by Healthier Princeton. Organizers hope to offer regularly scheduled, informal walking groups for campus community members.
The kickoff event is free and open to all faculty, staff and students, with no registration required. Questions may be directed to Gina Abrams or Susan Crane.
