WINSTON COUNTY - The Winston County Extension Office will be offering its walking program again this year.
Seniors will receive a $30 gift certificate to their choice of either Goar's Market or Piggly Wiggly in Haleyville; Gateway Foodland in Double Springs or Hyatt's Grocery in Addison if they walk 30 miles in 30 days during the month of April.
These gift certificates are limited to the first 30 people who sign up. Unlike the Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program, seniors only have to be 50 years old or older to enter, and there are no income limits.
This walking program is sponsored by the Winston County Diabetes Support Coalition and the Haleyville Community Foundation. The purpose of the program is to encourage seniors to have an active lifestyle. Seniors may apply for the program by calling the Winston County Extension Office at (205) 489-5376.
