50 Plus Walking Program Winter 2020 (January-March Session)

Frank O'Brien Papen Center

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department offers a program to build stamina, endurance and maintain cardiovascular health.

The 50-Plus Walking Program/0-60 is designed to get you walking up to 60 minutes in 13 weeks! It begins with 20-minute walks, three times a week, and works up to 60 minutes. Distance is not the priority, movement is. No racing or competition, just a focus on health and well-being.

If you are already an active walker, this is a great way to meet new people, walk and socialize! Participants walk at their own pace for a set time. Distance will be tracked every day to monitor individual improvement. All participants will meet at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave., and every fourth week will be an optional “Field Trip Walk” at another location.

The walks take place from 8 – 9 a.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, January 6 through March 30.

Registration is ongoing, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center.

The fee is $12 per month per walker and includes tracking of progress for the 12 weeks of the program.

For more information, call 575/541-2455.
