Class Description

A gentle, fun introduction to walking for fitness. Learn good walking/stretching techniques while making new friends, and end each Saturday at a different Bend coffee shop!


This walking series builds health, endurance, and you can meet great people while you start a lifelong healthy habit. Receive support from FootZone, and earn a team T-shirt.

Led by Michelle Poirot, of Footzone.

This class is FREE for cancer survivors and their caregivers. FootZone and St. Charles invite cancer survivors and their family members to regain their fitness through the gentle exercise of walking. We meet and slowly increase the amount of time we spend walking over 7 weeks, from about 20 minutes to a full 5k!

All classes meet Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. The first class meets at the Footzone in downtown Bend, then at various locations. Instructor will email participants weekly on where to meet.

 Wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. We ask that you leave your dog at home, but you’re welcome to invite a companion. A visit to one of the local coffee shops  as a group after the walk has become a favorite tradition. Enjoy walking, coffee and camaraderie.
