There has been a push the past few years to get Iowa to be a healthier state. This is coordinated by a yearly walk to help promote active lifestyles in community.  Last year, Clarke Elementary School took part in the initiative by walking 1 kilometer.

Clarke Elementary is doing their walk again 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9. The group will leave from the elementary school.

If you are interested in signing up to walk with Clarke Elementary School, go to  Their team name is “7 Habits Healthy Walk.”

You may go to the above site and enter your own team, as well, whether it’s a business team, organization team or even the downtown businesses teaming up to do a walk.
