Want to change your life? Walk.

Walking can boost your health, the way you live, and your community.

As a physical activity, walking changes your body physiologically, improving mental and physical health.

As a lifestyle, walking in your local neighborhood and parks can enhance your social and environmental awareness. You’ll see things you can’t see while driving.

As a driver of community change, walking contributes to building a culture of health through peer-modeling and observational learning. You change your parks and trails simply by being there. Sharing what you see—good and bad—can encourage others to walk and advocate for sustainable, equitable change.

UPDATE: Check out the recap on Wakelet

Join us for a #SaludTues Tweetchat on July 24, 2018, to tweet about how to promote walking and its amazing potential for better health, better living, and community action.  

We’ll open the floor to research, resources and your experiences as we explore:

  • Why outdoor activity is so important for health.
  • What local parks and recreation do to address inequity and improve health.
  • Specific steps community members can take to create change and build a culture of health.

Use #SaludTues to follow the conversation and facts, stories, and solutions to ensure that Latino and all families have safe parks and trails to walk, bike and play.
