National Walking Day Event in Naples

Blue Zones Project is partnering with the city of Naples, local schools and organizations to encourage everyone to walk for at least 30 minutes on April 5 as part of National Walking Day. A one-mile community group walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the bandshell at Cambier Park, in Naples. Walkers will head north on 8th Street to showcase the recent redevelopment project along Central Avenue (a partner project between Blue Zones Project and the city of Naples completed last fall that improved the walkability and bike-ability of this central corridor) and end at the Garden of Hope and Courage at the NCH downtown campus.

Walkers will receive a Blue Zones Project T-shirt and be entered into a $1,000 prize drawing. Light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be served to participants after the walk is finished.

Walk start location: 755 8th Ave. S. For more information, visit
