Orrville Walks kicks off April 4! Now in its fifth year, this community initiative was first implemented by Aultman Orrville’s Growing Healthy Habits coalition and Heartland Point to encourage community members to walk throughout town and to support local businesses.
Each year Orrville Walks keeps improving. Check in at Heartland Point, 200 N. Main St., every Thursday; walk around town (maps will be provided or you may walk any route of your choosing); and you will be entered into the weekly raffle. Businesses and organizations around town have donated prizes to provide additional motivation to keep you walking each week. The more weeks you walk and check in, the more times you will be entered into the grand prize drawing for $250.
A second check-in location has been added this year. Participants can now check-in at Buehler’s Fresh Foods at 1114 West High Street. Please check in at this location after 5 p.m. since Heartland Point will be closed.
Mark your calendars for the Orrville Walks 5K on Saturday, Sept. 21. This is a fun 5K run/walk for the entire family. Participate in Orrville Walks on Thursdays, and you’ll be motivated and ready for the September 5K! There is no fee to walk and check in on Thursdays, but there is a fee for the 5K to cover timing and set up expenses.
Register for Orrville Walks and the 5K on Thursdays at the Heartland Point information desk. Don’t forget your four-legged friends; they can win prizes for walking, too!
