Fontana Walks began as a challenge to the community to be more physically active for better health. Through help from partners, the program has continued and has offered taste tests/food demos, tips on how to include more fruits and vegetables into a daily lifestyle, as well as how to access free resources in the community.
Regular physical activity has been shown to help control weight and lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and depression.
Walking is easy, free, and pays big dividends for an individual’s physical and mental well-being.
Whether residents walk on their own, in a group, or join a community walk led by City Council and Healthy Fontana, it is important to remember that “every step counts.”
Participants can join at any time!
