NORWALK, Conn. – Did you make a New Year's Resolution to get more exercise? The Norwalk Health Department, the Healthy for Life Project, and Silvermine NorWALKers have the perfect Saturday morning event for you.

Norwalk residents are invited to take part in a 2.5-mile neighborhood walk on Saturday, Jan. 7, beginning at 8 a.m. at Silvermine Elementary School at 157 Perry Ave.

After the successful October launch of a neighborhood walking group in Silvermine, Norwalk residents Deborah Lewis and Lance Zimmerman will be guiding fellow NorWALKers on the group’s first walk of the New Year. The walk will take place rain or shine and will follow Loop 2 of Silvermine’s NorWALKer Walking Routes map, which can be found online .

After the walk through scenic Silvermine, all participants are invited to the Silvermine Market for breakfast (not provided) and conversation about how to build and sustain this neighborhood walking program in the Silvermine community.

No sign-up is required to attend.
