Eskaton, a nonprofit community based organization believes in the importance of aging well, and walking is an easy activity that can be enjoyed every day. 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. We care about the vibrancy of the Sacramento Region and if we’re able to help make exercise an important part of everyone’s daily routine through education and public awareness, we’re happy to do so,” said Kim Rhinehelder, vice president of communications and philanthropy for Eskaton.
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 can help educate the community of what it means to age gracefully.
