Walking Movement Leaders

Walking Movement Leaders

Walk2Connect Waking Movement Leaders (WML) are the “feet (or wheels!) on the street”. This growing community of changemakers (currently 500+) take on a specialized commitment to support a community Walking Movement in Colorado and beyond by: leading connection-focused walking experiences, creating invitation and storytelling around the benefits of walking together, becoming educated and empowered to help make places more walkable, and so much more. Through our WML program, Walk2Connect is able to provide free and low-cost walking trips almost every day of the week!

Walking Movement Leaders are encouraged to lead walks on routes and with themes that are meaningful to them and their community. Because of this, each WML brings a unique perspective and charm to their walks.
