Welcome back to Day 2 of Walktober!
Today, we’re highlighting the art installation/charity campaign led by Brenda’s Body Shop to benefit Cindy’s Fund: “Weathering Life’s Storms” in downtown Oakland. (More info & article from the Republican Newspaper here: https://www.wvnews.com/weathering-lifes-storms-campaign-to-benefit-cindys-fund/article_0deba744-1103-11ec-af3a-c30ae2ea14ef.html)
While walking around downtown Oakland last weekend, I was excited to see the incredible display, located in the alley across from the Book Mark’et & Antique Mezzanine, and even got a chance to reconnect with several of the girls from Oakland Jazzercise, who were there in support and encouraging passing community members and visitors to join their high-energy, and exciting routines!
One of the most incredible things about small town Saturdays is the opportunity to get outside (weather permitting), and explore the events happening in our communities.

It is such a beautiful installation.
What a joy to see the art installation and walk through Oakland’s downtown and park paths! Have more fun this “Walktober” by inviting a group of friends and family to get out and move! Together, we can do this!!!
Hiked at Alpine Lake. 13661 steps total today.
October 1st: Logged 10,123 steps despite driving in a car for 5.5 hours. How did you do on this 1st day of Walktober?
Got our walk in today!
On October 2nd did a lot of walking, touring lighthouses, etc in Rhode Island.
Spent the day walking through a pumpkin patch and sunflower fields with the family. The perfect way to spend the weekend and enjoy the nice weather we had.
There’s a little lake close to where I live, it’s a little over a mile around, and I got five laps in. Beautiful scenery!
I nearly didn’t get out of bed for my morning workout but I reminded myself how disappointed I’d be. So I got up and got moving!
40-min full body strength & conditioning
6 mile run Oct 2nd. The umbrellas are absolutely incredible! what a great site!
I love the umbrellas what a great fund raiser.Hopefully I will get my walk in.
This installation makes Oakland look magical:)
Walked through the umbrellas today!
Glad we are doing this again. The holidays are hard to exercise and cold weather makes it hard too
