“I love to walk but it isn’t always easy to find someone to walk with,” says Pat Eagan. “The Phillips Wellness 50+ walking group helps me walk more regularly.” Amy Rincon says she is “proud to wear my green t-shirt and be a part of a community of people working to keep ourselves healthy.” She and her husband, Roy, have hardly missed a week since the Phillips Wellness 50+ walking group formed last May.

Now, the group is kicking off a new community challenge—the Phillips Round the World Challenge. None of us can walk around the world by ourselves but together we can do it.

We invite everyone to participate in this fun way to contribute to a community goal, get some exercise and meet new people. No matter what speed or distance you walk (or roll), this is for you.

Gathering on Tuesday, April 4

Join us for an organizing meeting in the dining room of 2700 Park Apartments on Tuesday, April 4, from 5:00 to 6:30 PM. We’ll provide information about walking and serve a light dinner.

Walking Sessions Start April 18

The 8-week walking challenge will start Tuesday, April 18, meeting each Tuesday at 5:00 PM in the lobby of Ebenezer Tower, 2523 Portland Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404. For more information, contact Donna Nordin at 612-741-5180 or

Phillips Wellness 50+ is a community-led initiative with support from the Vital Aging Network, HealthPartners, Allina Health and the Bush Foundation.
