Does Your Community Host a Labor Day Bridge Walk?

The Michigan Fitness Foundation offers an opportunity for all communities to start their own Labor Day tradition by hosting a Labor Day Community Walk.

Labor Day Community Walks showcase the unique parks and recreation spaces in the local community’s own backyard. The event also gives the community a chance to come together while demonstrating a commitment to keep Michigan moving. Past community walks included activities such as walks and/or runs through public trails and across local versions of the “Mighty Mac.” Host organizations will receive free promotional materials and a guide to creating and hosting a community walk. In addition, your event will be endorsed by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Health and you will have the opportunity to use our logo on all materials.

This year Labor Day Community Walks will take place on Monday, September 2, 2013. We hope that you will consider making your community a part of Michigan’s Labor Day tradition. To learn more about the walk, please visit the Michigan Fitness Foundation’s website.
