Indiana County

WalkWorks Program

 

**EVENT CHANGES**

 

It is with great caution and, of course, disappointment, that we are postponing all of our active events through the month of April.  We will reassess next month and make the necessary decisions regarding future programs scheduled for May and June.

 

Because of the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, we are using an abundance of caution to keep everyone safe. Please keep checking back to our Facebook page for updates of any other changes in our schedule. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Program Overview:

In 2015, Indiana County was selected to participate in the WalkWorks program.  WalkWorks┬áis a collaboration between the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health to increase opportunities for physical activity across Indiana County.  Through this grant funded program, planners work with local communities to identify community-based walking routes and form sustainable walking groups that will enhance and expand active transportation with the ultimate goal of improving the health of County residents.
