Why I Walk

What's New This Year!

Walk Kansas participants will be able to participate in an online "Med instead of Meds" class series on Wednesdays at noon during weeks 2-7! If you are interested in eating the Mediterranean way but not sure where to start, this class series is perfect for you. Classes focus on the 7 Simple Steps to eating the Med Way. Each session will explore 1-2 simple steps, a mindfulness skill and features Med Way recipes from medinsteadofmeds.com

Print resources are listed below:
