Join UF/IFAS Extension Citrus County for Let's Walk, Florida!

Do you have 30 minutes a day for a healthier you? Then join UF/IFAS Extension Citrus County for 
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 
register, visit, or contact (352) 527-5700 or
