Mall Walkers Honors First “500 Mile Club” Members
Lake Wales, FL – Bill and Margaret Spangler of Winter Haven received their “500 Mile Club” commemorative T-shirts in June at the monthly prize program for the Mall Walkers program at Eagle Ridge Mall.
“The Spanglers are some of our most dedicated Mall Walkers,” said Maryemma Bachelder, Director of Marketing at Lake Wales Medical Center, which sponsors Mall Walkers in partnership with Eagle Ridge Mall. “They’re here almost every day without fail, logging at least three to four miles per day.”
The Spanglers are the first in the Mall Walkers program to reach the 500-mile milestone. They each received commemorative Mall Walkers t-shirts with “500 mile club” on the front in gold.
The Mall Walkers program enables people to walk inside the mall from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and from 10 a.m. to noon on Sundays. All Mall Walkers must enter through the Food Court and receive a badge in the Food Court, or wear the Mall Walker T-shirt. Participants are encouraged to track their mileage each day to earn prizes, including walking towels, water bottles, movie tickets and gift certificates.
Prize parties are held monthly to reward participants for reaching distance milestones. During prize parties, Mall Walkers participants can turn in their tracking cards for prizes, and also receive free blood pressure and blood glucose screening from LWMC nurses.
Participants are reminded to check with their physician before beginning any exercise program.
The next prize party is scheduled for Wednesday, July 6 from 8 to 9 a.m. For more information about Mall Walkers, call 678-2288. Mall Walkers is a partnership between Eagle Ridge Mall and Lake Wales Medical Center.
