La Clínica del Pueblo, a local nonprofit organization, is hosting its 4th Annual Walk-a-Thon for Health this year - and we have decided to create an RPCV/W team. La Clínica provides comprehensive health services to low-income Latinx immigrant communities in the DC Metro Area that are culturally and linguistically appropriate – so this is a great cause to support!
The Walk-a-Thon is a ton of fun and can help you stay active, with a little friendly competition built in. Once registered, you get instructions on how to download the MoveSpring app and join the virtual Walk-a-Thon by syncing the step-counting device of your choice to the app. You get to compete both individually and as a team from April 29th – May 31st. Individuals and teams have the chance to win prizes and glory for things like getting the most steps in a day or walking the furthest distance.
Our team name for the virtual Walk-a-Thon is “RPCV/Walkers” – so make sure you join once you’ve downloaded and signed up in the MoveSpring app! There is also an in-person kick-off event/walk starting at 10am at Malcolm X (or Meridian Hill) Park on Saturday, April 29th.
If you still want to support but aren’t interested in the competition, you can still support La Clínica and the team by donating in honor of my team at www.lcdp.org/donate. Under where it says “in honor of” just write “RPCV/Walkers” so the donation counts towards our team!
So what are you waiting for? Click HERE to register now!
