America Walks Program comes to Sturgeon Bay

The Door County YMCA received one of eight grants nationwide to bring America Walks to Prince of Peace Church in Sturgeon Bay on May 30. The First Lady of Wisconsin, Tonette Walker, will deliver the opening remarks. Mrs. Walker is well known for her “Walk with Walker” initiative around the state; the Governor and First Lady have proclaimed 2013 the year of Health and Wellness in Wisconsin.

Building on their proclamation, the purpose of the workshop is to enhance individual and community-based efforts to increase walking and walkability in Door County. Following the First Lady’s opening remarks, four panelists will create an action plan to make Door County more ‘walkable.’ The workshop will be held 9 am – 2:30 pm; a free lunch will be provided.
