What is WalkWorks?


To increase opportunities for physical activity, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health Center for Public Health Practice to create a network of fun, fact-filled, community-based walking routes and walking groups. WalkWorks:

  • Identifies and promotes safe walking routes
  • Offers social support through guided, community-based walking groups
  • Helps schools develop walk-to-school programs
  • Addresses local policies to increase safe walking routes
