In addition to providing an opportunity for New Rochelleans to get exercise while enjoying a friendly walk with neighbors, friends and co-workers, “New Ro Walks” will kick off an initiative of the City’s sustainability plan, GreeNR by encouraging the creation of “Neighborhood Walking Groups.”

”Public health is an important GreeNR objective, and if we can have fun at the same time, then so much the better,” said Mayor Noam Bramson.

Prior to the walk, event sponsors, including , ShopRite, , , and fitness professionals, will be on site to offer nutritional information, healthy snacks, health screenings and warm-up exercises.
