Cheers to 74 years !

Walk for Healthy Living our 25th Annual Walk-A-Thon,
Why do we walk? To take control of our health with the simplest form of exercise, walking. We encourage you to walk, and to keep yourselves healthy. Help combat cardiovascular disease, and improve your health and wellness! We challenge the community, our family and friends to join us in walking for healthy living. This year is different, we are encouraging you to walk on your own, maintaining social distancing, wearing mask appropriately with all guidelines put in place for everyone's safety.  

This year The Niagara Falls (NY) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated has joined the Erie County (NY) Chapter and the Buffalo (NY)Chapter of
The Links, Incorporated  

for a series of virtual and walking activities, from virtual healthy cooking demonstrations, and safe distancing events like viewing the sunset at Canalside, and strolling beautiful Goat Island in Niagara Falls. We hope that you too will take the opportunity to Walk for Healthy Living. 

Here is our collaboration of the Walk for a Healthy Living

The Niagara Falls (NY) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
"Community Link Up" provided our local communities with  food distribution of fresh fruits, vegetables, staple items of rice, beans and peanut butter. We also provided voters registration and PPE; mask for adults and children, gloves and hand sanitizer. We served the Lockport community at the Spires Apartments, Niagara Falls community at Wroebel Towers and a distribution location on Higland Avenue.

Women's History Month

Heart Health Month 
We wear red to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease 

Heart disease and stroke is the No. 1 killer in women, and stroke disproportionately affects African-Americans. Importantly, African-American women are less likely than other women to be aware that heart disease is the leading cause of death. Know your numbers and risk factors, see your doctor and get screened

Dr. Jonathan Steiner from Niagara Falls Memorial spoke on heart disease and wellness, games were played, raffles drawn and prizes were given, this event was enjoyed by all!
