Healthiest State Walk
Get ready to walk, Charles City Community School District!
Physical activity is one of the most important things all Iowa kids can do to stay healthy both physically and mentally – and walking is a great way to get moving while connecting with their classmates and teachers. We are pleased to announce that the entire Charles CIty Community School District will be participating in the Healthiest State 13th Annual Walk on October 4, joining thousands of other Iowans statewide. Charles City Community School District will host a 30-minute walk at each of the school sites. The event’s theme “#WhyIWalk” encourages participants to get out and walk for 30 minutes for whatever motivates them. Whether you walk to clear your mind, connect with family, for daily exercise, or just to take a work break, it is important to stay active. Our participation in the Healthiest State Walk shows our devotion to prioritizing our well-being, staying connected with each other, and remaining healthy. The Healthiest State is encouraging Iowans to participate on social media with the hashtags #WhyIWalk and #HSIWalk2023 during the Annual Walk. Learn more at IowaHealthiestState.com/Walk. The Annual Walk also serves as a kick-off to Healthiest State Month, happening throughout October, encouraging Iowans to practice the 5-2-1-0 Healthy Choices Count! habits.

Together we can help Iowa become the healthiest state in the nation!
