We are thrilled to announce that our Walk2Connect Programming is now available through our long-time partner, America Walks.

See WALK2CONNECT page for details.


The Walk2Connect Collaborative is a community of walking/rolling leaders that have hosted hundreds of walking/rolling experiences rooted in connection to others, to oneself, and to one's surroundings. Our collaborative was formed after formally closing the Walk2Connect Co-op in the winter of 2021.

Please visit each of the profiles below for more information on each member of our collaborative. Our members would love to work with you, alongside their unique passion areas, to inspire more connection-focused #Lifeat3MPH movement with you and your networks.
