Watch: A New Video Vision for a More Walkable Northeast Iowa

Walk Northeast Iowa just launched a new animated video about the importance & inspiration behind the Walk More, Connect More/Everybody Walk movement! The video shares their vision for a healthy and happy future that’s filled with safe school walking routes, rural drop-off locations, workplace walking clubs, improved overall wellness, increased community pride, and a more connected Northeast Iowa.

The passionate project provides Northeast Iowans with a toolkit of resources to help make walking the new norm. From information about how to start a walking group to facts about the environmental, economic, social, safety, and health benefits of walking, the lighthearted and inspiring video shares ideas to help our communities focus on walking, wellness, and holistic health. The vision presented stems from a meeting of Northeast Iowa minds that happened several years ago and has been recently resurrected as an important and economically advantageous shared vision for area residents and businesses alike.

With your help, the local Walk More, Connect More initiative can inform, inspire, and make our communities a more connected place.

Walk More, Connect More is made possible by partnerships between the Northeast Iowa Food & Fitness Initiative and over 30 regional partners.

    Moderately vigorous, extended walking is great medicine. It can be intergenerational exercise involving friends/family of varying physical ability. I hope this program takes off.
