Who is excited for National Walking Day? Everybody! National Walking Day is a great way to promote health and wellness in your organizations and to encourage physical activity amongst employees, neighbors, and friends. In our effort to make National Walking Day festivities fun, we partner with local businesses and retailers that are within walking distance at each pit stop. The partnership gives participants an opportunity to explore and interact with nearby businesses. It also means more giveaways!
