The Healthier U Challenge Team has conquered its goal of improving their overall quality of life and completing the Panther Dash 5K on Saturday, November 10. The team included eight members who received free individual and group training with Lindsey Talley, Cumberland Medical Center Wellness Complex Fitness Trainer.
Team member Sandy Dunn testified, “I am 67 years old and if I can do it, anyone can. Not only did this help my balance and stamina, but my back aches are gone as well. I was also able to come off of my blood pressure medicine after 22 years.”
Over the course of several months, they increased their endurance and collectively lost approximately 20 pounds and 65 total inches.
