Blessing Physician Services joins in with Quincy Mall Pacesetters
QUINCY, IL m —
February is National Heart Health Month.
Blessing Physician Services joined the Quincy Mall Pacesetters Walking Club.
Walkers are able to walk the mall free of charge for exercise.
Blessing Physician Services offers blood pressure screenings every Tuesday morning for walkers.
"Walking is one of the easiest ways to get exercise. A lot of time people think they have to be out at the gym, lifting weights, running doing all these things, really you don't. It is as simple as walking and going at your own pace. Even 20 minutes a day has huge cardiovascular benefits for people,” said Laura Wietholder with Blessing Physician Services.
Walkers received goody bags that included a pedometer and snack.
Blessing Physician Services will team up with the Pacesetters again on February 20th from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
