Start Somewhere Walk begins gaining supporters
Nearly 100 1-kilometer walking events have been scheduled as part of the Start Somewhere Walk, organizers announced today. The events, to be held throughout the state on Oct. 7 with a goal of 250,000 Iowans participating, will serve as the symbolic kickoff of the Healthiest State Initiative announced in early August by Gov. Terry Branstad. Nearly 8,000 Iowans have pledged their support for the initiative so far.
