Walkabout's 40th Anniversary Year

Our 40th Anniversary Year continues as Walkabout International has been in the forefront of promoting healthy regular exercise, social camaraderie and discovering new places since its inception in 1977. We have conducted over 35,000 walks covering more than 3.5+ million people-miles or the equivalent of walking around the equator over 150 times for thousands of our "soles" which is quite a "feet". An all-volunteer non-profit 501(c3) organization offers hundreds of local walks each year along with, low-cost day and overnight trips, parties and potlucks, holiday celebrations and other activities.
