Wellness Walks

A group of four people walks on a trail by Lake Merritt in Oakland.

 

As we shelter in place, many of us are experiencing the discomfort of not moving our bodies as much as we’d like. To counter this, our Wellness Walks provide you and your students with some extra encouragement to get out and enjoy a walk. Similar to monthly Walk and Roll to School events, we’ll pick a theme each month and offer suggestions for incorporating it into daily walks. We hope you’ll join us!

Also, we’ve launched the Walk and Roll Pen Pals program as another way to stay connected while we’re keeping our physical distance. Each month, we’ll provide a letter writing prompt that aligns with our Wellness Walk theme. Check out this month’s Pen Pals prompt in the Resources column on the right.
