One of the greatest exercises is something that you do every day – walk.  It is a simple way to add some movement to your daily routine. It doesn’t take a gym membership and you don’t have to drive anywhere to do it.  Not only will you get the benefit of the exercise, walking can help refresh your mind and give you more energy.

On October 2, 2013, the Elk Grove Unified School District and Kaiser Permanente kicked off the 2013-2014 “Your Health, Your Choice – Celebrating Wellness in EGUSD” employee wellness program with a ribbon cutting of a new walking route at the Student Support Center. The walking route is one of 18 walking paths at EGUSD schools and sites that were created through a donation by Kaiser Permanente. On-site walking areas give employees a planned route with posted mileage enabling them to get in some exercise with colleagues before school, during breaks or after school.
