In an effort to promote health and fitness, the Worthington Resource Pantry is launching a community walking program this summer.

Walk Worthington will host a series of health-related speakers before walks held every other Wednesday from June 3 to Aug. 26.

The walks begin with a presentation at 6 p.m. at the Old Worthington Library, 820 High St., followed by a trek throughout the city.

Walks also will take place before each performance in the Concerts on the Green series, held most Sundays throughout the summer. Walks will leave from the intersection of High Street and state Route 161 at 6:10 p.m., with two- or three-mile options and a stop at Graeter's Ice Cream before the show.

In partnership with the Greater Worthington Realtors' Association, the Worthington Historical Society and neighborhood civic associations, Walk Worthington will host four neighborhood walks throughout the summer.

Worthington Hills (June 14), Rush Creek (July 5), Old Worthington (Aug. 9) and Colonial Hills (Aug. 16) will all have their own walks, taking place from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. before dinner and drinks at a local restaurant.

The series also includes a pair of community partner walks. The group teams with the Worthington Division of Police June 28 to hear about pedestrian safety and the Griswold Center July 12 to discuss "fearless falling."

Lastly, yoga walks combine yoga and cardio walking with a local instructor. Yoga walks will take place at the Olentangy River Parklands at noon June 13, July 11 and Aug. 22.
