Our loved ones are the most important presence in our lives, and their health is paramount to us. With physical inactivity as the biggest public health problem of the twenty-first century, give your family a boost this year by giving them the gift of walking.

Help make walking an easy choice for your family members by locating good local routes. Research indoor walking locations so weather won’t be a factor. Give gifts of trail maps, pedometers or gift certificates for new walking shoes.
Once you get everyone on board, encourage each other with emails, phone calls or text messages. You can also download the Every Body Walk! app to keep track of progress.
