The JCBC walking club – named Let’s Walk – is a way to make new friends and build relationships while enjoying the health benefits of being on the move!

If you have a current walking routine…keep it up!

Also consider gathering a group of other club members and walking together. Be an encouragement to each other. Friendships are formed and relationships are deepened when we pursue a common interest together. Maybe you’ll want to grab a coffee or lunch after your walk.

By all means plan to join in on any of our organized weekend walking events held at various parks and walking trails around the area. You choose the distance. You choose the pace. We’ll just be together. You never know who you just might see there!

Check out the Walking Resources section, too. From time to time, we will provide articles or information that Let’s Walk club members may find helpful or interesting. We will also preview the organized weekend walk trails.

Join the Club! We would like to be able to contact Let’s Walk club members directly to make sure you’re kept up to date on the latest news.

Join the Club!

Name

Did you know that the JCBC parking lot is exactly ½ mile?

Just walk along the outermost curb all the way around. You are invited and encouraged to walk in the JCBC parking lot any time!

Too hot? Too cold? Too wet?

You are also invited to walk INSIDE JCBC any time that the offices are open. The 2nd floor offers a good, continuous, somewhat circular route.
