As we head into Fall and Winter, we may tend to move less and get less exercise. The City of Cedar Rapids is part of "Move More Week." From a City news release, "(i)n support of Iowa’s Healthiest State Initiative, the City of Cedar Rapids will offer a series of free, healthy activities for the public. The state’s Healthiest State Walk will take place on Wednesday, October 5. In Cedar Rapids, people are encouraged to meet in front of City Hall, 101 First Street SE, at noon and enjoy a 25-minute group walk to Greene Square for a complimentary lunch provided by AARP."
The City went on to detail several other "Move More Week" events including:
