Carole Linhart on Mayors Wellness Campaign

Speaking at the March 23, 2010 Kiwanis breakfast meeting was Carole Linhart, director of the Chatham Borough Mayors Wellness Campaign. Part of a State-wide program, the Chatham program aims to implement active-living initiatives to improve health of people in the community. Ms. Linhart was introduced at the meeting by Kiwanis member Melanie Sze. The speaker said that exercise is not a dirty word. To offset the natural decline in our bodies as we age, all people should regularly do some form of exercise. She recommended walking and invited members to join the group of walkers which meets twice a week at the Chatham Middle School at 5:30 PM. This kind of mild exercise will help offset loss in efficiency of our body’s cardiovascular system, improve muscle tone, and reduce osteoporosis. She urged all of us to pick an activity we enjoy, set goals for achieving a better life style and actually meet our goals. She is setting a good example for Kiwanis by planning to climb Mt. Rainier this year.
