Iowans across the state have shown their support for the Healthiest State Initiative by the thousands. By the hundreds of thousands, actually – each year for the past three years, nearly 300,000 Iowans have participated in 1-kilometer walks to show that we’re ready for a healthier Iowa.
As we approach our fourth year, we need your help to keep the momentum going and make this year’s walk the biggest one yet. Be part of the movement by walking one kilometer (.62 miles or roughly 12 minutes) on October 8.
Returning this year is our Talk the Walk recruiting contest, a contest where people can receive Hy-Vee gift cards for recruiting others for their walks. For every person who is successfully recruited, both the recruiter and the recruitee will be entered into a drawing for one of several Hy-Vee gift cards. Learn more about the Talk the Walk Contest >>
