 What is a Health Walk?

The health walks are part of “One Life Suffolk” which leads “Stepping Out in Suffolk”, encouraging people to walk safely. Some of the walkers have health issues and these walks are designed to be easy for those who may not have taken part in walking before. Seven members of SOS are now Qualified Walk Leaders for One Life Suffolk. If at anytime during the walk a walker has done enough they will taken back to the start point.
