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!
