On next Wednesday morning, January 15th from 8 am to 9 am, you can take a brisk 2 mile walk with the Mayor and Township Officials around the Cherry Hill Mall.  This is a part of the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, and is a FREE event designed so residents can meet, speak with and walk with the Mayor and members of Council while starting your day with a little exercise.  

Walking is a great social activity and this event will give you a wonderful opportunity to speak with the Mayor and other Township Officials.  You can ask questions as well as meet other residents and officials.
Here are why walking is good for you:
  • Regular walking has been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.  It lowers levels of (LDL) bad cholesterol while increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and helps keep blood pressure in check.
  • Regular walking can slash your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, asthma and some cancers.  
  • Regular walking can help strengthen and shape your legs, quads, hamstrings and lifting your glutes – especially if you add hills.
  • Regular walking can tone your arms, shoulders and upper back.  Your speed when walking comes from your arms; hold them at a comfortable level, bent at the elbow and swing them backwards and forwards as you walk.
  • A brisk walk is one of the best natural energizers around.  It boosts circulation and increases the oxygen supply to each and every cell in your body.
  • The ability of exercise to boost your mood is undisputed.  Studies show (such as brisk walking) to be as effective as antidepressants in cases of mild to moderate depression.  Getting active releases feel-good endorphins into the bloodstream, reducing stress and anxiety.
Getting some exercise while talking with the Major and city officials makes this a win/win activity.  Put on your walking shoes and meet the Mayor!!!!
