The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities

The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities

Physical activity is one of the most important things Americans can do to improve their health. Step it Up! The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities recognizes the importance of physical activity for people of all ages and abilities. The purpose of the Call to Action is to increase walking across the United States by calling for improved access to safe and convenient places to walk and wheelchair roll and by creating a culture that supports these activities for people of all ages and abilities.

Walking is an easy way to get moving! Check out this whiteboard animation featuring Surgeon General's Call to Action.

Discover Your Role

Everyday in our journey we come in contact with hundreds of people and each one is someone’s son, daughter, wife, husband, father or mother. In this journey, we have our roles. May we never forget the critical role we play in ensuring their safety. When we know our roles and take actions, we can make a difference in pedestrian and bicycle safety.
