Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — The Fitness Initiative Team of Rush County invites you to join them in several Walkabouts this Holiday season. On Wednesday, Dec. 5, enjoy Christmas lights with a view from the sidewalk on a F.I.T. Walkabout. Meet at 5 p.m. in the Rush County Fairground parking lot at the corner of 11th & Sexton streets. The destination will be determined by the participants. Caroling will be optional.

On Thursday, Dec. 6, walk with the Indianapolis Hiking Club as they visit Rushville with “Get Fit on the Fitness Trail.” Meet at 3:45 p.m. in the parking lot east of Rushville Consolidated High School. This Walkabout will be offered each Thursday through January.

Walkabouts are not always a walk. Anytime Fitness invites the participants of the FIT Walkabouts to visit them on Fridays at 4 p.m. (this is a new time.) You can walk or try other exercise equipment. They do ask non-members to sign the guest register.
