An eight-week program to promote a healthy lifestyle is set to begin March 18 in Marion County.
Sponsored by Walk Kansas, the team-based program is geared to helping individuals lead a healthier life by being more active, making better nutrition choices, and learning positive ways to deal with stress.
Participants will be grouped into teams of six people each, and the teams will register locally with the Marion County Extension Office at 202 S. Third St., Marion.
There is a $6 fee per person. The deadline for registration is March 8.
