Men’s Hiking for Health & Happiness

Wednesday, October 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Please meet outside of the Wildlife Discovery Center at Middlefork Savanna, 1401 Middlefork Drive, Lake Forest, IL 60045

Research demonstrates that outdoor exercise, such as hiking, offers health and well-being benefits. Join us outside the Discovery Center for a nature meditation followed by a two mile hike. Please arrive no later than 10:00 am, wear comfortable hiking or running shoes, bring a water bottle and dress for the weather. The hiking terrain is not paved and we may encounter irregular surface paths – all part of the beauty and joy of the hike! Hike will be cancelled in the event of rain.

Presented by: Mark Livshots, MA, LPC

Meet outside the Wildlife Discovery Center entrance by 10:00 am – promptness is important.  It is located near the entrance to the parking area.

Please be prepared to wear a mask and practice social distancing if indicated on the day of the hike.

This hike is reserved only for men with a cancer diagnosis or a male caregiver of someone with cancer.

This program is part of the Cancer Wellness Center’s Men’s Health Education and Support Series, funded in part by a donation from Astellas.
