Walking Clubs and Events

Want to start your own walking group?  Advertise at local libraries, grocery stores, and health fairs to add more walkers. You can even set goals and track your progress as a group. If you have a local neighborhood with a Block Watch, you can join and help build membership. Walking with such groups provides eyes on the street and helps make neighborhoods safer to walk for others.
