Observe Walk Nashville Week (Oct. 3-9) starting this weekend

From the Metro Nashville Codes Department:
Making Nashville one of the healthiest cities in America is everyone's goal in the community so October 3-9 has been declared Walk Nashville Week to celebrate and promote walking in your daily life and walking throughout Nashville.

The week will consist of Walk to Worship Day (October 3-4), Walk Your Neighborhood Day (October 5), Walk to Work Day (October 6), Walk to School Day (October 7),
Walk for Active Aging (October 8), and Walk to Lunch Day (October 9).
  • Walk to Worship Day promotes local congregations to walk to their worship activities on the weekend of October 3-4. Congregations are encouraged to develop walking groups, that will continue throughout the year.
  • Walk Your Neighborhood Day celebrates taking pride in your city and neighborhood. The Community Health and Wellness team is developing a printable booklet of various maps of community-based walks that will not only encourage physical activity but also
  • give you an opportunity to learn about Nashville history, along with a chance to appreciate your community.
  • Walk to Work Day asks Nashville workers to walk to work for the day and to consider walking to work more often in the future. The Community Health and Wellness Team sets up shop at various locations around town to provide free breakfast to walkers and to promote the day.
  • Walk to School Day is designed to increase students' physical activity levels, focus on the walk-ability of the surrounding environment, and increase safe walking skills. The Nashville Walk to School Day has been nationally recognized for its large participation numbers and health promotion aspects.
  • Walk for Active Aging promotes walking among senior citizens and the senior centers around Nashville. Maintaining physical activity into your senior years
  • continues to have a great benefit on your health.
  • Walk at Lunch Day promotes walking at lunch for the day. Area companies and local office buildings will be promoting walking groups from within to walk at lunch, and to hopefully continue these walking groups throughout the year.
