A community walk provides an opportunity for your employees’ families to participate in a wellness initiative.

Choose a date & time
Choose a date you think would be most successful for participation of your employees. Take into consideration other possible community events.

Choose a location
Explore site availabilities (examples: city parks, school track facilities, neighborhood routes, downtown walking areas).

Set a distance goal
Offer a distance for both beginners and avid runners.

Promote your community walk to employees

Have a sign-up sheet for the community walk and encourage employees to attend with their families. Provide directions, walk attire, and any location restrictions to participants.

Prepare for the community walk

Provide water and perhaps a light snack, such as a granola bar or fruit, for walkers. Additional activities could be incorporated into the walk day such as cornhole, soccer or other group games to encourage socialization.

Day of Walk:

  1. Prior to walking, have a team member take a group photo. Also capture pictures of participants walking during the event.
  2. Prior to walking, lead everyone in warm-up stretches.
  3. Walk!
