The Walkers of Westlake, a Plus Fifty group from the Westlake Center for Community Services recently completed 10 virtual walks around the world. The actual walks were 2 miles in length completed on the scenic track of the Westlake Recreation Department. The virtual walks took our seniors all over the world to such places as: Italy, Germany, China and Mexico, to name a few.

Each week the group received a treat from the featured country, as well as the next set of clues to help them determine their next destination. They also received a flag from the country they visited fastened to their "suitcase" so that they could track their own travels. The suitcases were part of the Center's bulletin board display. At the conclusion, our walkers returned to the good old USA for a breakfast provided by the Lutheran Home of Concord Reserve.

The Westlake Walkers is a fun group activity that is held annually at the Westlake Center for Community Services during good weather. Other fitness opportunies found year-round at the center include: Asian Exercise, Tai Chi, Strength and Stretching, Yoga for Flexibility, Chair Yoga, Arthritis Exercise and Senior Exercise.
