According to researchers in the health industry, "the world is facing a physical inactivity crisis of epidemic proportions that is bankrupting economies and decimating human potential."
The TAFISA Walking Day, founded in 1991, encourages public and open spaces as safe and friendly areas for people to walk.
The 2016 TAFISA World Walking Day is October 1st and 2nd. This year's event, the organizers are planning a fully integrated program for participants. Aside from walking, they are also inviting other activities like bicycles, skates, rollers, etc,. The goal is to integrate physical activity into the everyday life of people that is "Designed to Move."
It would be wonderful to be able to participate in the 2016 TAFISA World Walking. J.J. and I look forward to joining other walkers wherever we might be in early October.
