Kodiak Walks

Become A Walking Movement Leader 

Do you enjoy walking, connecting to your neighbors, learning about your community & have a passion such as art, music, history, food, etc.  Are you interested in learning how to shape your passion into a connection-focused walking experience to share with your community?  Walk2Connect Waking Movement Leaders (WML) are the “feet on the street” when it comes to impacting whole-health outcomes through connection-focused walking programs. With a community of over 200 leaders throughout the United States (and beyond), leaders commit to inviting, leading and telling the story of connection focused walking.

We encourage all Walking Movement Leaders 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.  Join our [email protected] movement!
