Walk2Connect is an innovative worker-owned cooperative working to create whole-health walking programs focused on connection to others, to the places we live, and to ourselves. We have thousands of individuals and a growing variety of organizational/governmental partners. Our social enterprise model works hard to help people and communities become healthier and more connected while also advancing awareness on the importance of walkable community design and the pedestrian experience. Learn more about our cooperative here.
We currently have 9 co-op Member-Owners, over 350 trained Walking Movement Leaders, 150 Life@3MPH Champions, a host of Community Partners and up to 40-50 walking, hiking, and rambling experiences throughout Colorado and beyond on a weekly basis. In 2016, we hosted over 1,645 walking trips! We hope you can join us in helping one another and our communities connect, grow, and heal at the pace we’re built to. Please reach out to us if you are interested in partnership, champion status, joining a walk, supporting our mission, or becoming one of our Walking Movement Leaders!
