Walking is an easy form of physical activity for most people and regular walking can lead to long term lifestyle changes and health benefits.
Walk BC® encourages individual and group walking to increase overall health in communities through a range of programs that promote walking. This site helps communities and individuals increase awareness of the importance of a physically active lifestyle and support and promote walking as a key factor in increasing overall health and well-being.
Walk BC® was created through a joint initiative between the Heart &
Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon and the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA). It was one of four initiatives under the Physical Activity Strategy. Funding was provided by the BC Healthy Living Alliance, with support from ActNow BC. The Walk BC® initiative is now managed solely by the BCRPA.
