The program, sponsored locally by Grundy County Memorial Hospital and physician Dr. Eric Neverman, is part of a national movement that pairs physicians with members of their community to encourage regular activity. The first walk of the new year is Wednesday, February 7, 9:00 a.m. beginning at the Grundy Family YMCA. Walkers can meet inside the Y, located at 102 East G Avenue in Grundy Center with comfortable shoes and dressed for the weather.
