The 15th annual Walk @ Lunch was held on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at the pavilion on East Market Street at Baptist Street. This free event celebrated Global Employee Health and Fitness Month. It was a reminder that taking an exercise break is good for employee health and therefore good for a company’s bottom line, and that downtown Salisbury is a great place to walk.
This year’s walk featured most of the new permanently marked Downtown Walking Route, exhibitors, giveaways, and door prizes, including a FitBit.
Approximately 370 walkers, exhibitors, and volunteers participated, and 184 lbs. of food were collected for the Maryland Food Bank.
The event was coordinated by the Wicomico County Local Health Improvement Coalition and financially supported by gold sponsors Avery W. Hall Insurance; First Shore Federal; George, Miles & Buhr; and Headquarters Live; silver sponsors Hebron Savings Bank; Peninsula Insurance; PNC Bank; and Telewire; and bronze sponsors Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore; Davis, Bowen & Friedel; Market Street Inn; Mojo’s; Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce; and Wilgus Insurance.
