It is NOT a walk-a-thon or fund-raiser, but a way to get motivated to start moving and keep moving. You can start the healthy habit of walking everyday with this 8 week, statewide walking challenge.
The vision of the Walk Across Arizona campaign is to encourage individuals and families to increase their participation in activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. The ultimate goal is to increase satisfaction with the community and decrease social isolation of residents within communities.
