A Year of Walking: Report on the 2015 Every Body Walk! Micro Grants

America Walks and the Every Body Walk! Collaborative are excited about the great work carried out to date by our community partners as part of our first-ever round of micro grants awarded last year. The grants, issued in the wake of the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to get America walking, helped to fund an array of creative projects that are getting people moving. These range from walking maps to help people see the possibilities for walking in their neighborhoods to a campaign to get employers interested in the bene ts of walking at the workplace to an initiative that that gets patients walking as they wait for their medical appointments.

This report looks at a sample of the great work being done by grantees. Be sure to send us your own success stories and submit an application for a 2016 Micro Grant.
