Walk It Off: Charity Walks

Walk for your health -- and a worthy cause.

Walk It Off: Charity Walks

Looking for motivation to get you off the couch? We've got it: a charity walk. Whether you're in the mood to cover 2 miles or 22, you can get in shape for a cause. "You'll raise money and awareness while at the same time benefiting your own health," says Michelle Look, MD, medical director of the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk. And even before you cross the finish line, feeling full of accomplishment, you'll have dropped unwanted pounds. Our training walks will get you started.

You can do it! Check out our energizing programs, developed by Alissa Twisk, a personal trainer in London.
