Start Somewhere Walks Print

Iowa made history last October, when more than 291,000 Iowans participated in Start Somewhere Walks that kicked off the Healthiest State Initiative in Iowa. On Wednesday, October 3, Iowa plans to do it again by encouraging Iowans to take time out of their day to walk a kilometer (.62 miles) with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and fellow students. Within our school district, we are participating in the 2012 Healthiest State Walk. Lincoln School will be participating by walking after the morning recess. They will be recording the number of laps walked by each student. Tim Balvanz, Lincoln's Phys. Ed. teacher, will be recording the numbers and reporting how far the entire school has walked. It will be interesting to see how far the state will walk on that one day. For more information go to: IowaHealthiestState.com
