You can’t help but sleep in the excitement of cooler nights. September is right around the corner. I am not attempting to rush time but I am looking forward to all of the wonderful things Your Turn and September has to offer! Get your calendar ready! We have a Couch to 5k IN KALAMAZOO!!!!! Beginning September 11th at 6:30 p.m. It is a 10 week program preparing for the Arthritis Jingle Bell Run in November. I personally know two children that struggle with juvenile arthritis so this run is dear to my heart. Please understand you do not have to be a “runner” to do this program. If finishing a 5k (3.1 miles) walk or run is your goal. DO THIS! You know we are not just about the exercise! We will also be offering a Couch to Kitchen 10 week healthy cooking program, September 13th 6:30 p.m. to 8:00p.m. at the Can Do Kitchen. The emphasis of this program will be learning about reducing Gluten in your diet. Even if you have not considered going Gluten Free (like me, I haven’t). Learning about it and incorporating small changes will cause a positive effect. We will be including menu planning, feeding the family, and so much more. Unfortunately we are limited to only 10 participants. The cost is $30 per person. That will help with the cost of the facility and the food. Scholarships are available upon request. Contact us by email to sign up. Remember we are offering these programs but do not think that at the end of the 10 weeks you are off our radar! That is what the gatherings are for! We want to know where you are in your wellness journey. You are always welcome to join us at any of our gatherings. They are an hour and a half of informal inspiration! Feel free to bring friends.
