Cedar Rapids to host city-wide walk on October 3

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA –The City of Cedar Rapids will host a city-wide walk on October 3 in support of the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative’s annual walk. Walkers across all 99 Iowa counties will come together as a reminder to build healthy habits into everyday routines.

“I encourage all residents to participate in this walk, which is designed to encourage us all to move more and make community connections,” said City Manager Jeff Pomeranz, “Cedar Rapids has placed a priority on becoming a healthier community. This year we received a Healthiest State Initiative Community Award for advancing efforts to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of residents in Cedar Rapids. This walk is a great way to continue our efforts and encourage community participation.”

The walk will begin in front of City Hall on 1st Street SE at noon and meet approximately 20 minutes later at Greene Square. After a few words from Governor Reynolds and City Manager Jeff Pomeranz, walkers are free to enjoy tailgate-style festivities. Lunch will be available free of charge. Walkers can socialize and enjoy music and games before returning to work at their convenience.

The annual walk is a reminder that walking is an easy way to increase physical activity while providing an opportunity to connect with friends and co-workers at the same time.
