We've Got Stories To Tell... Yours and Ours.

It All Started With Just One Step…

On November 1, 2014 Jo Ann Taylor will celebrate having walked every day in a row for 5 years!
That’s 1826 Consecutive Days – Whoo Hoo!

It started out as a 30-day goal just to get myself back on track! Well it turns out that one day leads to another and another….More than a few times along the way I told Gene (my husband and co-founder of the Walking Connection) that I didn’t feel like walking anymore. He would just respond by saying, “So tomorrow morning you are going to say Day 1, Whoo Hoo!?” Yep he always knows how to get me going, in a good way of course.

So here I am with almost FIVE full years of days – of walks – of hikes – of miles, sometimes only ten minutes, but an accomplishment none-the-less. WOW! I really did this and now I want to share this milestone with everyone!


There is no registration form and we don’t require your email address. Just follow the simple steps on the page below.

To celebrate I am inviting all of my friends from around the world to go for at least a 10-minute walk (run, bike, swim – just be active) on November 1, 2014. It can be anywhere, any place YOU are. It doesn’t have to be far or fast, just walk with a purpose. There are just 3 EASY steps. First, go to the World Wide Walk page on our site here: World Wide Walk!
