Walking for Health, Connection, Community or a Cause
"Walking as a Practice" examines four ways in which individuals and organizations are engaging in walking.
This report outlines four categories that identify how individuals and organizations across the United States of America are engaging in the practice of walking:
- Personal Health and Connection
- Motivational Campaigns and Workplace Wellness
- Inward and Outward Journey
- Causes and Social Justice
After introductory descriptions, these four categories are illustrated with case studies of eleven local, regional, and national walking organizations. Each organization, in its own unique way, provides opportunities in one or more of these four areas, for people to engage in the practice of walking. We hope this material will offer ideas, encouragement, and inspiration for more people to participate in walking as a practice.
