The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.
The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.
Marysville Healthy Communities Challenge Day
Marysville began its annual Healthy Communities Challenge Day in 2009 as part of a larger effort to promote a more active and healthy community. The event introduces attendees to local health and fitness agencies and healthy food vendors, and also provides fitness demonstrations such as Zumba, hula hoop, and jump roping. The free event features giveaways (hula hoops and jump ropes) and free family health screens.
