National Walking Month – May 2022

We are sorry to be a little late to this party – but you can join in with these initiatives any time – so with 7 days left of this month – why not aim for 7 x 20 minute walks in the rest of May – or even make up for starting late !?

May is Living Streets’ National Walking Month – an initiative of Living Streets – the UK Charity for everyday walking.

This year, Living Streets are encouraging you to #Try20 – and walk for 20 minutes each day during May.

Walking is an easy and accessible way to improve physical and mental health and a 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions, including certain cancers, depression, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

By swapping a short drive for a short walk, you can also help reduce air pollution, congestion and road danger – whilst saving yourself some money and getting active in the process! 

Living Streets want a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday local journeys.

Their mission is to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more.

Progress starts here: one street, one school, one step at a time.
