Become a Walk Maryland Day Leader
Planning in Progress
by Kristen E. Humphrey, MLA, Local Assistance and Training Planner
In last month’s edition of Planning Practice Monthly we told you about Maryland’s first ever WALKTOBER, a month during which the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and other partnering agencies will promote and host events and webinars spotlighting Maryland pedestrians’ safety, health, and commuting options in a variety of walk programs and initiatives, including Walk Maryland Day.
Walk Maryland Day is a celebration of our state’s official exercise and a call to action to promote walking for physical activity and improved health. This year, Walk Maryland Day will be celebrated on October 7, 2020.
Are you interested in registering a walk you will lead on October 7th to celebrate Walk Maryland Day? Use the link below to fill out the form and become a Walk Leader and register your walk.
Walk Leaders are the change agents from different sectors of the community who see the health benefits of walking and encourage fellow Marylanders to take time out of their day to enjoy a walk within their community.
At a later date, all registered walks throughout the State will be posted and Sole Mates registration will open up. Sole Mates are participants who sign up to join registered walks.
