Walking the Talk

Mall walkers take strides to a healthy life

Since 1989, a group of older adults has been taking to the corridors of Iverson Mall in Hillcrest Heights, Md., to walk as part of a healthy lifestyle. Numbering 450 active members, they meet three times a week and participate in several charity walks in the Washington area throughout the year.
