WALK JOPLIN

Get Your Steps In. Make New Friends. All for Free!

Walking is one of the easiest ways you can practice some self-care.

Mentally:

  • Improves attention
  • Improves decision making
  • Helps with creativity
  • Alleviates depression

Physically:

  • Lowers heart disease risk
  • Reduces cancer risk
  • Improves blood pressure
  • Strengthens legs, hips and hamstrings

And since Joplin has double the park acreage of many cities our size, there are plenty of spaces where you can get active.

All you need is a pair of shoes!
