Come together with your neighbors, fellow community members, and hundreds of thousands of other Iowans to support the Healthiest State Initiative on October 4! The Healthiest State Initiative’s goal is to make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation. The Annual Walk on October 4 brings communities together by having an organized Healthiest State Walk, presented by Delta Dental of Iowa, in all of Iowa’s 99 counties.
This year’s Annual Walk aims for Iowans to “Walk More. Connect More,” by walking for 30 minutes with your friends, co-workers, family or neighbors. Walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy. It’s also a great way to connect with others. There never seems to be enough time to enjoy time with friends and family. By inviting them to walk with us, we get to catch up and refresh our minds, and the physical benefits add up, too. Invite a friend or co-worker for an after-lunch walk, take care of weekend errands with your family on foot, or invite neighbors to start a casual walking group. Along the way you’ll build strong bonds and memories.
Just 30 minutes of physical activity each day improves physical, social, and emotional health. Guttenberg is excited to partake in the Healthiest State Annual Walk as it represents a commitment to our residents’ well-being. We look forward to not only walking together on October 4, but also initiating and celebrating a cultural shift where we walk more, connect more.
We hope you will “Get Your Walk On” with us at Guttenberg Municipal Hospital at noon on October 4. We will meet in the hospital lobby. The walk will be 30 minutes and we encourage you to join and walk at your own pace as we all take steps to improve our health.
Help change the lives of your fellow Iowans – and your own – by joining this year’s Healthiest State Walk, presented by Delta Dental. We hope to see you at noon on October 4. Together, let’s continue stepping toward a healthier and happier Iowa.
