Join Mahaska Health October 7th for the 10th Annual Healthiest State Walk!

Each October, Mahaska Health challenges their team members to take part in the Healthiest State Annual Walk. This year, the challenge is being extended to the whole community to take part in the Healthiest State 10th Annual Walk on October 7th.

The Healthiest State Annual Walk is an opportunity to join thousands of other Iowans statewide in walking for 30 minutes on the first Wednesday of October. The theme for the 2020 walk is “Team Up for 10.” Healthiest State Initiative, the event’s host invites all Iowans to Team Up for 10 – to help celebrate 10 years of the annual event. Your walk event may look different this year, but we still invite you to “team up” – whether that means with members of your household, in a smaller group, in a socially-distant fashion or even as a virtual team – and walk on October 7.

Participants may walk wherever they like, at any time during the day. – at home, work, or out on the beautiful Mahaska Community Recreation Foundation Trail. The YMCA will also open their doors from 9 AM – 7 PM for walkers who wish to use the treadmill for the Healthiest State Walk. To walk at the YMCA, please bring an ID. All walkers are encouraged to post about their walk on social media and use the hashtag #walkmahaska.

Participants for the walk may register here by October 6th at noon will be eligible to win prizes!
