Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) is taking part in Walking Month, a national campaign created by Living Streets. CACT delivers Greenwich Get Walking, commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, which connects residents with a wide range of free walking opportunities throughout the Borough.
Greenwich Get Walking walks are fun, free and friendly and a perfect way to help you to become more active and meet new people. Walking is sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, but walking at a brisk pace can help to build stamina, burn excess calories and improve your heart health.
This May is National Walking Month, and CACT is encouraging residents to take part in a Greenwich Get Walking led walk. The walks are a great way to explore new parts of the Borough whilst meeting new people.
As well as its regular walks, CACT is also putting on special walks throughout the month to celebrate National Walking Month. Walks this month include:
- Gallions Health Walk, Wednesdays: 9.45 am-10.45am. Meet at main entrance gate of Gallions Health Centre, SE28 8BE.
