Over the past three years, hundreds of thousands of Iowans have taken great steps toward building a healthier Iowa by participating in the annual event. Their enthusiastic participation earned Iowa the ranking as the ninth healthiest state in 2012. Up five spots from its previous ranking in just two years!

The Healthiest State Walk, presented by Delta Dental of Iowa, is part of the greater Healthiest State Initiative. The overall goal is to inspire Iowans to improve their health and happiness and subsequently become the healthiest state by 2016.

Folks can participate in the upcoming 1-kilometer walk as individuals, with their families or as part of a group. To commit to walking or to register to be part of a group, visit
