DES MOINES – Organizers of the Healthiest State Initiative are asking Iowans to keep the momentum going by joining the one-kilometer Healthiest State Walk on Wednesday, Oct. 8. This year’s goal is 500,000 walkers, which would make it the largest statewide walk to date. “It only takes one. One walk, one day and one commitment to help. We’re askingfor statewide community support for this year’s fourth annual 1K Healthiest State Walk,” said Terry Rich, chairman of this year’s Walk committee. “The ones are adding up, and the goal is to get a half-a-million Iowans walking as part of our effort to make this state the healthiest in the nation.” Many organized walks will be held at noon on Oct. 8, but walks are encouraged throughout the day. Emmetsburg walkers have several opportunities, including a noon walk from the Fareway parking lot to Five Island Lake and back. In order for walks to be counted, registration is required:
