“Get Your Walk On in Waukon” at the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative Annual Walk Wednesday, October 4

This year’s Healthiest State Annual Walk is encouraging Iowans to “Get Your Walk On” by walking 30 minutes this Wednesday, October 4. Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon will host a walk in cooperation with this healthiest state initiative at 12 noon. Anyone interested in joining the walk is directed to gather in the main entrance parking area of the hospital. The route will follow the WalkMore.ConnectMore route around the golf course, returning to the hospital. This 1.4-mile route walk will conclude at the hospital’s main entrance where free wellness testing, educational displays, a photo booth and light refreshments will all be available.

Walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy. It’s also one of the best ways to connect with others. In walking with friends or family, one can catch up and refresh the mind. Invite a friend or co-worker for an after-lunch walk, take care of weekend errands with family on foot, or invite neighbors to start a casual walking group. Along the way, everyone will build strong bonds and memories.

Walk for 30 minutes every day, not just October 4. For more walk information on the upcoming seventh annual Healthiest State Initiative Walk, call Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon at 563-568-3411.
