Grab the kids, grandparents, strollers, neighbors, and leashed furry friends and meet at the east LF Metra Station for an energizing Community Walk to kick-off the city-wide GO Lake Forest community wellness movement.
Our GO Lake Forest Community Walk is a partnership with several Lake Forest community organizations and the Lake County Health Department to promote its new health initiative, GO Lake County. The goal of GO Lake County and GO Lake Forest is to improve the health of Lake County residents by promoting the simple act of walking as means to improve health. Look for other events in town throughout the year promoting healthy living and an active lifestyle.
Join us and your neighbors in walking your way to better health!
