Walk NH 2012 033

CONCORD - A vigorous walk was made all the more pleasant by glorious weather as First Lady Dr. Susan Lynch helped the Foundation for Healthy Communities kick off Walk New Hampshire Week 2012.

More than 50 participants took part in a round-trip jaunt from White Park to the State House - 3.2 miles total - where Dr. Lynch read a proclamation commemorating Walk NH Week 2012.

Walkers ranged in age from 5 to 85, as the Concord YMCA's Apple Class of pre-schoolers joined with seniors who sported the official blaze orange T-shirts that signified their role in the event that is chronicled at www.walknh.org.

In addition to the Foundation for Healthy Communities, other sponsoring agencies include the Governor's Council on Physical Activity & Health, the NH Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance and Service Credit Union.
