You do not need to walk alone. Walk with Me is designed to have people to walk with. It is a great way to get out and meet new people while improving your health. Did you know that walking has the lowest dropout rate of all fitness programs? it's the simplest positive change you can make to improve your heart health.

Research has shown that walking at least 30 minutes a day can help you:
