Marlborough Moves Offers Free Health Programs for Residents and Businesses
Free programs to include motivational health and wellness education and exercise
Marlborough Moves, a community health and wellness program launched by the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce (MRCC), is continuing its year-round endeavor to provide free health and wellness programs to local residents and business. The free programs include lectures on healthy eating and cooking, nutrition and alternative therapies, and exercise classes and workouts offering walking, running, Nordic walking (with poles), biking, yoga and preparation for road races and obstacles courses.
“Marlborough has many health and wellness practitioners and numerous opportunities for exercise and learning healthy habits that we want to bring to the attention of local residents,” said Susanne Morreale Leeber. “This initiative is one of many the Chamber implements to bring awareness to local businesses and offer programs of value and substance to the area.”
“The goal with Marlborough Moves is to educate and show the community how easy and affordable it is to be healthy,” said Kathy Ekdahl, one of the coordinators of Marlborough Moves. “We hope to inspire the community to become better acquainted with all the free health and wellness offerings out there and do our part to help slow the obesity epidemic in this country.”
Marlborough Moves works with local health and wellness practitioners to assemble an agenda of educational sessions and exercise activities, some which occur on an ongoing basis.
Marlborough Moves’ current calendar of free classes and activities is as follows:
• Wednesday Morning Walks, 7:00 – 8:00 a.m., Ghiloni Park, with Suzanne LaForge of Advantage Small Business.
Upcoming special event:
• Mountain Biking Event, July 13, 7:45 a.m., Callahan State Park, with outdoor biking and fitness enthusiast Brian Forestal of Kitchen Center of Framingham.
