Why Walk?

Regular exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health.  Walking can provide numerous benefits by helping manage your weight, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, strengthen your bones and muscles, protect against chronic disease and much more.  In addition to the benefits of walking, studies have shown that being outside in nature can boost your immune system, improve your mood, and lower stress.  Walking–even a little bit to start and working up to 30 minutes to an hour several times a week–is all it takes to start improving your sleep and circulation, support your joint health, and decrease your risk of developing a serious health issue such as coronary heart disease or type II diabetes.

What is the Santa Fe Walking Collaborative?

In August 2017, the Santa Fe Conservation Trust asked many community partners to join to improve public health, expand the use of city parks and public trails, and encourage and facilitate regular outdoor exercise by providing residents with knowledge and connections to existing walking and trail resources. The combined effort resulted in a series of walks across the city, designed for all age groups and interests. The program has grown each year and in 2019, 542 walkers participated and the walks altogether totaled 97.2 miles!

Members of the Santa Fe Walking Collaborative include the convener, Santa Fe Conservation Trust, the City of Santa Fe, City of Santa Fe Senior Services, Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, La Familia Medical Center, and AARP.
