Start the new year right! Moving your body and eating healthy foods improves your physical and mental health. Healthy Shasta invites Shasta County residents to participate in the Healthy Shasta Walks Passport during January and February 2022. Complete at least 10 walks on the Walks Passport to receive a pair of sports socks or hip pack (while supplies last) and to be eligible for prizes. The Walks Passport is part of the Healthy Shasta Walks campaign, which offers maps and trail information, hosts walking challenges, and shares walking resources to make walking safe and convenient. Walking in nature also helps you manage the stress of daily life. Here’s to a healthy 2022!
