Decathlon & WalkWorks Program
In 2015, Indiana County was selected to participate in the WalkWorks program. WalkWorks is a collaboration between the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development, Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center (formerly through the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health) to increase opportunities for physical activity across Indiana County. Through this grant funded program, planners work with local communities to identify community-based walking routes and form sustainable walking groups that will enhance and expand active transportation with the ultimate goal of improving the health of County residents.
Be entered into a raffle for prizes by POSTING on the Indiana County Walking Decathlon Facebook page with #ICDecathlon2023 by June 2nd
Prizes will be drawn at 1pm in the Blue Spruce Park Gazebo during Naturepalooza June 3rd, 2023
Stretching before your walk not only warms up your muscles, but it increases your
flexibility and range of motion.
Join Josie Smith, Cloe Thoericht & Molly Katzmann from IUP's Kinesiology, Health and
Sport Sciences Department in this short video of key stretches that will help you get
the most out of your walk.
