Arlington, VA - As part of the RRCA’s Join a Club promotional efforts, the organization has partnered with Weight Watchers International, Inc. to be a part of the Weight Watchers Walk-It Challenge. Through the partnership, Weight Watchers International will become our Official Weight Management Sponsor.
“The RRCA has long advocated the health benefits of walking and running, and has provided, through its member clubs, the opportunity for individuals to participate in these activities and incorporate them into a healthy lifestyle”, explained Jean Knaack, RRCA Executive Director. “It is in the spirit of encouraging all Americans to become more active, that the RRCA has partnered with Weight Watchers to present the Weight Watchers Walk-It Day 5K events around the country.”
Beginning in April, individuals across the country will have the opportunity to take part in the Weight Watchers Walk-It Challenge - a program to help people train to walk a 5K in 6 weeks. The program will culminate on Weight Watchers Walk-It Day, June 6, 2010. On this day, individuals across the country will be encouraged to participate in an official Weight Watchers Walk-It Day 5K event hosted by an RRCA member, or find a local 5K event to walk in, or map a safe 5K route and walk with friends and family.
