Step it Up! The Dalles

step-it-up-the-dalles-logo-page-001Social support has a major impact on an individual’s health and well being. Step it Up! The Dalles is a community-based walking group program aimed at increasing social support of individuals striving to improve their health and well being.

Walking groups are made up of individuals from existing communities such as church groups, seniors groups, and shared work places. Groups congregate at central locations once a week to walk, talk, and foster community.

For more information or to start a walking group in your community, please contact NCPHD at 541-506-2600.
