Lace up your walking shoes!
The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center, inspired by the Johnstown Downtown WalkWorks program, has teamed up with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to develop a Walk Works route for Cambria City. Join us on Saturday October 16, 2021 at 1 PM for an introduction to the route, our first walk, and more information on regularly scheduled walking groups.
Our art filled route is just under 2 miles and will take you through historic Cambria City. We kick things off in the beautiful FNB Pop Plaza, cross the pedestrian bridge, take in the beauty of the Cambria/Somerset Power Street murals (there may even be some artists at work), and enjoy the fine architecture of several of Cambria Cities historic churches. Bottle Works yoga instructor Adriann White will be leading the walk, and our initial group walking offerings.
Here is a little more about the WalkWorks program:
To increase opportunities for physical activity, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has partnered with the Pennsylvania Downtown Center to create a network of fun, fact-filled, community-based walking routes and walking groups. WalkWorks:
- Identifies and promotes safe walking routes;
- Offers social support through guided, community-based walking groups;
- Helps schools develop walk-to-school programs; and
- Addresses local policies to increase safe walking routes.
So, start walking today!
