The clouds are finally clearing and the weather is (slowly) warming up, which means it is time once again time for the Market Street Mile. Two new sponsors are on board this year which is always exciting.
Yoga On Main , a new Chamber member located in Wintersville and Capital Recovery Systems, Inc., a long-time Chamber supporter located in downtown Steubenville are on board to help purchase t-shirts, snacks and prizes.
The walk is from the Chamber offices at 630 Market Street, down through town, across the bridge and back, which equals exactly one mile! It’s a great way to incorporate some fresh air and physical activity into your work day while enjoying downtown Steubenville and some amazing views. The Chamber transforms one of its offices into “MSM” Headquarters where walkers can store their belongings while they walk and help themselves to a pick-me-up snack, water, and any other necessities they may need from sunscreen to umbrellas. There is also a sign-in sheet where you log your walks and enter for a chance to win some great prizes. There is no need to register or sign up and there’s absolutely no charge. Last year, we had participants who walked every day and some who stopped by to walk every so often. We even had some visitors to the area enjoy the program.
Remember, just walk any time during the Chamber’s regular business hours of Monday through Thursday, 9 to 4 and Friday, 9 to 1. The event will kick-off Wednesday, May 1st and extend through October 31st giving everyone plenty of time to experience the downtown area and walk their way to a healthier lifestyle in 2019.
