Promoting America Walks

Meet Molly O’Reilly!

Molly O'Reilly1. What’s your day job and how do you think your professional experience fits in with the mission of America Walks?

I am retired after a career in marketing and management. As a volunteer, I’m involved in walkability at the national, state and local levels.

2. In a sentence or less, describe why walking matters to you.

The ability to walk safely is a basic civil/human right denied to way too many in our country.

3. Name one thing anyone can do to make their community more walkable.

Walk and encourage/invite others to walk! (There are many subsequent actions that produce results, but this is available to all.)

4. What’s your favorite place to walk?

I love exploring new neighborhoods and landscapes.

5. If you could go for a walk with any living person, who would it be?

Vivek H. Murthy, US Surgeon General.
