Meet new friends and have fun while staying healthy as part of Hampton Road’s newest walking group. Walking is a terrific way to keep your mind and body healthy, meet new friends and enjoy the beautiful weather.

The Camelot Community Center in Chesapeake, VA established a Walking Group this Spring that meets every Friday at 8:00 a.m.

The Chesapeake Chapter #2165 also started a new walking group this summer that meets every Friday at 8:00 a.m at Oak Grove Lake Park, 409 Byron St, Chesapeake, VA 23320.

Everyone is welcome to walk at their own pace, and walk as little or as much of the route as they choose from half a mile up to 3.1 miles.  Many of the walkers feel that it will help improve their medical conditions and they are enjoying this buddy system.

Walking for Grownups is free, open to all ages, walkers are not required to be members of AARP to participate.

If you have any questions regarding Walking for Grownups, please email your name and number to hraarpwalk@gmail.com
