recently enjoyed a sunny afternoon walking around Windmont Park in Kewanee.

The Health Department's Women Out Walking Program recruited over 100 area

women to participate in a 10-week walking challenge.  Participant teams came

from both Henry and Stark Counties with communities like Kewanee, Geneseo,

Toulon and Wyoming represented.  Through the WOW program, the Department

encouraged participants with their walking goals by providing pedometers and

walking logs; and also provided Health Education noting the benefits of

walking, healthy lifestyle changes and eating habits.
