Walking College Fellow Spearheads Effort to Make Neighborhood Safer

Here's a fantastic example of what a difference the graduates of the Arkansas Walking College can make in their community. ArCOP partnered with America Walks and other civic groups to transform Little Rock's Pettaway Neighborhood into a more walkable, bikeable area.  A former Fellow of ArCOP's Arkansas Walking College was instrumental in spearheading the project.  Truly amazing work by everyone involved to make positive changes to a growing community.

An Inside look at the Arkansas Walking College

The Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention has partnered with America Walks and the Arkansas Department of Health to create the state's first-ever Arkansas Walking College. In short, the goal of the program is to find and develop advocates to help make our communities more walkable. The first graduating class of Fellows (students) wrapped up their training recently. We were there to see how it works and why everyone involved shares a common vision and passion.
