I Walk!

Walk into Health and Arrive at Your Destinations

Whether you're looking for ways to improve your health, green your commute or just get where you want to go, walking gets you there. Pledge to walk more by joining the Step into Life Challenge! and tell us your inspiring and fun stories about your walking trips.

Step into Life is a countywide walking program designed to inspire everyone living or working in Alameda County to enjoy the journey by walking. Step into Life focuses not just on exercise, but on encouraging people to walk for many of the trips they make each day. Just a little time walking each day can make a huge difference.

Here are some simple ways you can add steps into your life:

  • Visit with family and friends while walking
  • Enjoy the fresh air and stride during lunch or breaks
  • Get exercise with your kids by walking them to and from school - learn more at Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools

  • Stroll with your dog every day
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Motivate yourself by using a pedometer
