“I volunteer with Feet First as I feel like leading walks is an ‘on the ground’ way to promote walkable communities, said Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Bryan Fiedorczyk. I think walking is a fun and effective way to travel, to really soak in our surroundings that we often miss by faster moving modes of transportation, and build exercise back into our daily routine.”
