Co-owner Toto's Service Center
The first individual to sign-on to the Wheeling Walks
30 Minutes or More Challenge is Nancy Toto from Belmont,
Ohio. Nancy is a breast cancer survivor and recognizes
what a gift good physical health is! Nancy and her
husband Mitch have been married since 1960, raised
three children, and now have five grandchildren. Nancy
says, "There's not enough hours in the day to
do everything we want to do." Nancy has a love
for life that comes through whenever you talk to her.
When questioned about her love of walking, Nancy
gave the following answers:
do you walk? There are so many reasons but Taking
Control! Is the most important. Taking care of myself
the best way I can and knowing I'm doing everything
I can to be a healthy person (physically and mentally)
is important. It is also my own special time to Thank
God for all of my blessings.
do you love walking? Walking through the four
seasons is why I love it! Every season has its own
beauty and wonder. I look forward to all of them!
And I feel it is an absolute privilege to do so.
is your toughest obstacle to walking? I volunteer
for so many organizations that some days there's no
time left for me. But I am changing that. I am cutting
back and taking the time for myself. I'm Worth It!
is your best advice for new walkers? Don't think
of it as a chore, but as a privilege. Time that you
DESERVE for yourself. Only 30 minutes a day! Everyone
is the coolest benefit of walking? It doesn't
cost anything and the rewards are something you can't
is your biggest surprise about walking? I think
of walking like I do brushing my teeth or taking a
shower - I don't feel right unless I do it every day.
somewhat unique in her occupation and health concerns,
Nancy is like the rest of us. She juggles family,
work, and other obligations every day. But unlike
a lot of us, Nancy recognizes the importance of walking
for her health and well being. She knows that taking
the time to keep herself healthy is as important for
her as it is for her family. Nancy is an inspiration
to the Wheeling Walks 30 Minutes or More Challenge.
We thank her for joining our campaign and hope that
her story will help all of us to Take The Time To
Walk Thirty Minutes Or More Every Day!
