Walk with DMACC on Wed., Oct. 7th

Location: Meeting Places in Campus Registration Link
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
On Oct. 7th, thousands will again support Iowa’s efforts to become a healthier state. This year, the goal is to have at least one walk in each of Iowa’s 99 counties—and hopefully more!
This year, the Healthiest State Walk falls during National Fire Prevention Week, and invites all to “Walk at the Whistle.” Schools and businesses are encouraged to hold fire drills in coordination with 1K walks to promote fire safety as well as general healthy living.
Support your DMACC campus and the Healthiest State Initiative. Click below to register:
I hope you’ll join us in walking 1k at noon on Wed., Oct. 7th. Though it will only take about 12 minutes, it’s part of something much bigger.
