Ways to participate include walking or biking to work, visiting a friend, going to the corner store, shopping, going to church, going to school or walking to the rink, park or library.
Watch for these initiatives in your community: walking school bus, more and better sidewalks, way-finding information, workshops and courses, videos and pamphlets.
