Healthiest State 10th Annual Walk

Thank you for walking with us!

The Annual Walk is an opportunity for your household, school, workplace, community or organization to join thousands of other Iowans statewide in walking for 30 minutes on the first Wednesday of October.  We are walking because it is good for our physical, mental and emotional health.

We know that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your walk event may look different this year. We still invite you to "team up" – whether that means with members of your household, in a smaller group, in a socially-distant fashion or even as a virtual team – and walk with us on October 7! #TeamUpFor10

DON'T STOP THERE: Take a step in the right direction for your health by walking every day in October. Track your progress with the "Walk With Us In October" calendar!
