Snow Hill, MD - In celebration of Men’s Health Month, the Worcester County Health Department in collaboration with the City of Pocomoke will be hosting their first Just Walk for Men’s Health event on June 10th.
The event will take place at Cypress Park in Pocomoke City, MD. It will include a walk, no-cost health screenings, health education, and more. This family and pet-friendly event is open to all county residents.
Registration and check-in will start at 8:30 a.m. followed by opening remarks at 9:00 a.m. by special guests Pocomoke City Mayor Todd Nock and Al “Hondo” Handy. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a pre-walk warm-up with Gary Press, owner of G Fit Boot Camp, followed by a walk through the park. After the walk, participants are encouraged to visit health vendors and participate in free health screenings, including blood pressure and a diabetes risk assessment.
“ Participating in regular physical activity can help improve health and quality of life for individuals of all ages. Recent community health data found that about 1 in 3 men in Worcester County do not participate in physical activity and nearly 29 percent of Worcester County adults are not active. This event is a great opportunity to engage in activity with friends, family, and the community in the beautiful Cypress Park,” said Rebecca Jones, Health Officer for Worcester County.
Pre-registration is encouraged and can be found at Eventbrite.com The first 100 individuals to register will receive a commemorative t-shirt. For more information, please call 410-632-1100 extension 1108.
Thank you to the City of Pocomoke and Mayor Todd Nock for their support of this event.
