Check out this new publication, Let the Good Vibes Flow: Staying Active and Connected Through Community Walk & Roll Programs, inspired by Healthy Savannah’s community health and wellness initiative.
This guide explores how to create community walk and rolls centered on inclusivity and social connectedness. The method is inspired by Healthy Savannah who started organizing community walks as a way to stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. What began as casual outings around Chatham County, Georgia turned into regular community walks that are livestreamed to online audiences. The premise is simple: choose a location, invite community members, and go for a walk. The benefits are not only about physical fitness, but are about connecting with one another and exploring the places where we live, work, and play. Healthy Savannah developed a solid method – now it’s time to see what a walk and roll program can look like in your community!
In this guide you will learn:
- How to get started organizing a community walk and roll
- How to expand your reach through in-person engagement, social media engagement, and livestreaming
- How to build and sustain momentum for your program
- Practical tips from the Healthy Savannah team
