Walk for Life
Overlake and the Bellevue Family YMCA invite you to Walk for Life, a free on-going program held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (except holidays) from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at Bellevue Square Mall. Walkers can attend whatever days and times fit their schedules.
Walk for Life is a safe, effective, low impact and convenient way to exercise while meeting friends. Walking in the mall provides a flat, well lit, even surface with controlled temperatures in a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Half-mile and one mile routes are available but everyone walks at their own pace and the distance that works best for them. Click here to download walking maps.
A Walk for Life coordinator is available daily to help get the most benefit from the walking program. Free blood pressure screenings are also available. This is not a medically supervised program.
It is easy to join Walk for Life or just try for a day. As of Monday, August 1, 2016: Check in at the Walk for Life registration table inside the doors at Bellevue Square Mall on the second floor off Skybridge #4. Park on the second level of the west parking garage, near the NE 4th Street entrance across from the last skybridge.
Parking is free.
Walking is a great way to improve overall health that requires no special equipment and can lead to weight loss, decreased stress, decreased blood pressure and overall cardiovascular health. The low impact activity can increase a person’s balance and coordination reducing the risk of falls.
No registration is required. For more information on the Walk for Life Program, please call 425-688-5259.
