According to the Mayo Clinic, regular walking can help you maintain a healthy weight, prevent or manage high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, strengthen your bones and improve your mood.
Becoming a partner with the Arden Fair and Inside Track was an easy choice for Eskaton. Eskaton cares about the vibrancy of the Sacramento Region and upholds exercise an important part of everyone’s daily routine. Arden Fair’s Inside Track provides the perfect backdrop for Eskaton to achieve these goals through education and increased public awareness.
Inside Track, a program created by Arden Fair, attracts walkers of all ages to walk, together or solo, in a temperature-controlled environment year round. Inside Track also provides health topics and resources to its members. “Eskaton will be our provider of health information,” said Nathan Spradlin, senior manager for Arden Fair. Through quarterly breakfasts with health and wellness presentations, Eskaton aims to educate the community on healthy aging.
