As part of the GM Moving in Action launch, we wanted to celebrate walking as part of the events, and also showcase some of the walking work across Greater Manchester.
We have some walk suggestions below, for the week of 13-17th September for our conference attendees to join in with.
So, let’s walk the talk, and teach what we preach! Make a commitment to yourself to get out in the fresh air. Maybe arrange to meet up with a colleague, family member or friend, and check out one of these walks, or indeed any of the many walking groups or self-led routes, plus the Go Jauntly 30 wellbeing walks, which are all available on our website!
Booking may apply for some of the walks listed.
If you are not already booked onto the GM Moving in Action: Launch and Conference on Monday 13th September, you can book on here
