The event, which will take place at the Tucumcari Fitness Complex across Gamble Avenue from the Tucumcari High School Auditorium, will feature walking along a fitness path and different forms of exercise at activity stations along the way, according to a Health Council flyer.
Students, families, friends and neighbors are invited to come and start walking at 7 p.m. Tuesday, the Health Council flyer said. The event will continue until 8 p.m.
In addition, snacks, music and a free book, “The Mind in the Making,” willbe available free.
“We encourage everyone to come out, get ‘The Mind in the Making,’ and have a great time,” Alida Brown, Health Council coordinator, said.
