    Walk Maryland Day is a celebration of our state’s official exercise, and a call to action to promote walking for physical activity and improved health. Statewide, walk leaders and their “sole mates '' (participants on their teams) registered for 41 free community walks as part of a larger multi-agency “Walktober” initiative promoting fitness and exercise all month.


    MDH Deputy Secretary for Public Health Dr. Jinlene Chan speaking about the importance of regular exercise for good health​

    “The pandemic has helped highlight the importance of walking—not only for physical health, but for mental health as well,” said MDH Deputy Secretary for Public Health Services Dr. Jinlene Chan. “Walking is a free, accessible exercise that can be done safely. Just a few minutes a day provides so many health benefits.”
