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 http://www.iowahealthieststate.com/healthiest-state-walk  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.
