Registration for the Healthiest State 10th Annual Walk, presented by Delta Dental of Iowa, is now open. On Oct. 7, thousands of Iowans across the state will participate in walks at schools, workplaces and in their communities. “Taking steps to improve your health is more important now than ever,” said Jami Haberl, executive director for the Healthiest State Initiative. “Due to COVID-19, we know that your Annual Walk team may look a little different this year, but walking is still a safe and accessible way to stay active during this unprecedented time.” Those who register for the event will have access to resources such as communications templates, social media guide, customizable posters and a month-long walking calendar. Along with the annual walk, the Healthiest State Initiative is also hosting two contests — a School Mascot Challenge and a Community Walk Mini Grant competition.
