The health walks continue in the area with the next one on May 7 in Cottonwood with the assistance of the track team. May 14 the walk will take off from the Pub and Grub in Keuterville, and the final walk on May 21 will be at the Monastery of St. Gertrude. The Partnership for Healthy Communities, a group of five health systems and two community service organizations are sponsoring these walks on the prairie in an effort to promote physical activity and raise awareness about the need for movement in our lives. All the “Walk the Prairie for Health” series of events is geared to all age groups and fitness levels. Bring the whole family and the dog (on a leash) for some fun and good times.

Another walk is scheduled for May 7 in Grangeville. It begins with a free breakfast at Sts. Peter and Paul’s Parish Hall on South B St. It is the ninth annual Walk for Life to support the Hope Center. Registration is at 9 a.m. The walk begins at 9:55 a.m. and is about two miles long. At 10:55 a.m. prizes for those collecting the most money will be given. Kerry Uhlenkott, from Right to Life of Idaho, will give a report on what’s happening in the LIFE movement. If you want to collect donations, contact Charlotte DeArmond for a donor sheet.
