Mayor Quentin Hart invites Waterloo residents and workforce to join him for the annual Walk Waterloo and Iowa Healthiest State Annual Walk on Wednesday, October 6 starting at noon. The event will kick off at the Riverloop Expo Plaza where Mayor Hart, Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg and leaders of the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative will encourage participants to add 30 minutes of walking to their daily routine.
Iowa Healthiest State Annual Walk is presented by Delta Dental. The 2021 theme “Walk More. Connect More.” highlights the social benefits of walking. Being physically active is one of the most important steps that people of all ages and abilities can take to improve their health and integrating exercise with social activities is shown to have a positive impact on our overall health.
Food trucks, live music and a host of vendors will also be on hand at the Expo Plaza to celebrate the annual walk and state initiative. Waterloo Leisure Services and the Healthy H2Loo initiative are sponsoring the event locally. Main Street Waterloo, Waterloo Center for the Arts, Waterloo Public Library, INRCOG, and Irving Elementary are also event partners.
