Nurses Week Walk-a-Thon

The Pohnpei state hospital nurse's organized their annual Nurse's week walk-a-thon. This year the theme of the week is "Be active, eat smart, lose weight, and get vaccinated!" The specific goal of the walk-a-thon was to help people put in their 10,000 steps per day.

The run continued out to Lidakida beach. Inbound the route turned right at Mesenieng and climbed up to the Spanish Wall ball field. From there the runners headed south towards AMCRES where a right turn took us east towards Pohnpei campus.
