Physical activity is one of the most important things all Iowans can do to improve their health – and walking is a great way to get moving.

The Healthiest State Annual Walk, presented by Delta Dental of Iowa, asks Iowans to walk for 30 minutes with their friends, co-workers, family and neighbors. The Oskaloosa Area Chamber encourages you to take this first step in building a healthier lifestyle.

“Join us on Wednesday, October 2, at noon in Downtown Oskaloosa as we participate in the Healthiest State Annual Walk in support of the Healthiest State Initiative,” shared Deb Bruxvoort of the Oskaloosa Area Chamber & Development Group. The walk will be approximately 30 minutes around the City Square. Participants are encouraged to walk at their own pace.

Follow the Healthiest State Initiative on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to learn more about why walking is important. Be sure to share pictures of your walk on social media using #GetYourWalkOn2019. With your support, Mahaska County can help Iowa achieve the Healthiest State’s goal of becoming the healthiest state in the nation!

The Healthiest State Initiative invites all Iowans to take this first step in building a healthier lifestyle and hopes that you will make walking 30 minutes part of your everyday routine.
