The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department invites residents to take a walk by joining the 50-Plus Walking program, which promotes building stamina, endurance and maintaining cardiovascular health.

The 50-Plus Walking Program/0-60 is designed to get you walking up to 60 minutes in 12 weeks. It begins with 20-minute walks, three times a week, and works up to 60 minutes. Distance is not the priority, movement is. No racing or competition, just a focus on health and well-being.

If you are already an active walker, this is a great way to meet new people, walk and socialize. Participants walk at their own pace for a set time. Distance will be tracked every day to monitor individual improvement. All participants will meet at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave., and every fourth week will be an optional “Field Trip Walk” at another location.

The walks are from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, from Sept. 9 through Nov. 27.

Registration is ongoing, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center. The fee is $12 per month per walker and includes tracking of progress for the 13 weeks of the program.

For information, call 575/541-2455.
