The annual Walk to Health program is a free program and was developed in 2004 as a part of a NDHHS Block Grant promoting Health People 2010. The objective of this program is to build awareness of individual physical activity within the eight county health district. Additionally, the program will evaluate any changes in individual health habits.
The program kicks off each spring and continues for twelve weeks. It is a self motivated walking program in which you log your walking steps to track improvements. At the end of the twelve week program, an ending evaluation form is submitted. Incentives and prizes are awarded to those who achieve their goals.
