An event held last year that drew a record number of participants is seeking participants for this year’s event.  As part of Governor Terry Branstad’s goal of becoming the healthiest state in the nation, the Healthiest State Walk has been scheduled for next week.  Governor Branstad tells KCII News that he is excited about all of those taking part from schools to other groups.


Last year more than 291,000 people took part in the walks as part of an effort to reduce obesity.  This year’s walk is taking place on the square from 11:00 and 1:00 on Wednesday, October 3rd.  To sign up for this walk or one in your area, look at this link.
