Sole Sisters IX exercise program

Women over the age of 21 who are interested in becoming active and who have no regular exercise program can join Sole Sisters IX exercise program at no cost.

Increasing evidence demonstrates that participating in the Sole Sisters program can help improve overall fitness and can help gain a few new friends. The program runs 14 weeks long and will begin on March 10.

At the end of the program, participants aim to complete the Komen NC Triangle Race for the Cure on June 13, 2009. Participants will meet every Tuesday evening until the race.

An orientation will be held for those interested in participating from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 24 in the Sunflower Room of the Friday Center. Participants must register for the orientation. Registration for orientation is limited to the first 100 women. Register online at www.cancer.unc.edu/solesisters/registration.asp or call Holly Rio at 919-966-5905.
