MDI Hospital’s Spring Walking Series is now underway and many participants are enjoying the many benefits of walking. The group, which is sponsored by MDI Hospital's Wellness Programs, meets every Monday and Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. in various locations throughout Acadia National Park through June 24.

With the company of friendly people, who enjoy a noncompetitive activity, and the beauty Acadia National Park offers, one can enjoy both social rewards and the many physical benefits of fitness walking.

Always consult with your physician before starting an exercise program. All MDI Hospital sponsored walks are supervised by a CPR certified individual who has a first aid kit and cell phone available.
