Walk at Work Day

Walk at Work Day has been celebrated in Sedgwick County on the third Wednesday in May since 2006. This year the Health & Wellness Coalition of Wichita, along with multiple partner organizations, continues the tradition. On Wednesday, May 15th, encourage employees to boost their energy with a walk!

Ideas to promote walk at work day:

  • Set up competitions between department in your worksite
  • Men vs. Women – based on the percentage of men & women working at the worksite
  • Competition by floors on multi-level buildings
  • Does your office require front desk coverage? Consider setting up a front desk relay – one at a time, employees walk a set path and then relieve the front desk staff upon return.
  • Consider allowing tennis shoe/jeans day
  • Schedule a regular trash clean-up walk around your facility.

Continue to Walk at Work year round. Resources to help you succeed:
