Join UF/IFAS Extension Citrus County for Let's Walk, Florida!
Let’s Walk, Florida!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults should get at least 150
minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. Walking offers an accessible form of
physical activity that does not require pricey gym memberships or special equipment, has a vast
number of health benefits, and can be done at your leisure. When coupled with healthy eating,
meeting physical activity recommendations for your age and activity level promotes mental and
physical wellness, weight management, and chronic disease prevention and management.
Let’s Walk, Florida! is a statewide, virtual healthy lifestyle education program and physical
activity challenge. During this 6-week program, you will receive weekly eGuides, engage in weekly
eConnections with a local health educator and other residents from your county, and track and
report your physical activity minutes. This virtual community provides the education, support, and
accountability needed to improve your health.
The goal of Let’s Walk, Florida is to build a community where healthy eating and an active
lifestyle become lifetime habits. Even though the title of the program is Let’s Walk, participants
are encouraged to track and report any moderate intensity cardiovascular activity. Top performers
will also compete for prizes at the county level.
All participants who complete the program will receive a certificate and medal. During this 6-week
program, every week we will meet as a group at a different county park around Citrus County.
Program registration is $15.00 and will begin on March 22, 2023.
This program is open to individuals, families, and organized teams. For more information and to
