St. James Holy Strollers

Welcome to our team page!  We would love to have you join us, Saturday, June 9, 2018, at Frawley Stadium, Wilmington, DE for a 5K walk/run benefiting Family Promise of Northern New Castle County, a unique, faith-led organization assisting homeless children and families by providing hospitality directly in houses of worship.  This program serves families facing a growing epidemic of homelessness in order to keep them together and provide hope.    

Thank you for supporting our team in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community.

  • Did you know:  Walking one mile a day burns 100 calories.  You could lose 10 pounds in a year without changing your eating habits.

  • If you walk regularly (three or more times a week for a half hour or more) you are saving $330 a year in health care costs, according to a survey published in the October 2000 issue of  "The physician and Sportsmedicine."  

  • On average, every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 to 2 minutes.  That's about a 2 for 1 trade-off.

  • One hour of brisk walking every day can cut a woman's risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in half!
