Smoking Cessation Program (Cancelled)

Due to another surge of Covid in Louisiana, we have cancelled the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking program for August. Due to the clinic sessions being held indoors, and masking needed for the safety of participants, we decided to postpone the program until a better time. Please check back for updates!

Currently, we offer a morning walking group. In August 2021, we will offer a Couch to 5K program, that moves people with no running experience from the couch to a 5K distance (3.1 miles) in 10 weeks!

Our Couch to 5K program is still on! A short introductory meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, at 6:30 p.m., at First Grace United Methodist Church.

Our training sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings (starting August 3) and Saturday mornings (starting August 7). For more information, visit the Couch to 5K program information page.

More programs will be added in the future to challenge, engage, and empower people in reaching their goals.
