(April birthdays: please bring an appetizer or dessert to share, and keep in mind we may have more attendees than usual.)

When: Tues, April 4, 6:30 pm

Where: Meadowbrook Park, Community Center (Birch Room), 91st & Nall, Prairie Village, KS 

Many members train for specific goals or events within the Sat Walk & Run Groups.  From time to time, we offer additional training opportunities as part of our mission to promote women’s health through fitness.  Coming for spring 2023: the Living In Vitality Training Team, presented by AdventHealth. Learn more HERE. 

All of our training programs focus on building fitness gradually and safely, in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
