WeWalkPHL offers 17 park locations throughout Philadelphia where community members can explore the outdoors, meet new people, or go on a walk or run. Sugar Roane, a woman who joined the WeWalkPHL community to improve her physical and mental health, has described the organization as a “lifesaver.” Sugar remarks that “When you look good and you feel good about yourself, it changes a whole lot about you. It changes you mentally. And if I get stressed or I get depressed, I take a walk.”
The community is stronger and closer because of the network and support provided by WeWalkPHL. “They encouraged me and helped me and let me know that it wasn’t a race. It was at my own pace. I got so much great feedback from them that I continue to walk,” said Sugar.
We encourage everyone to go to the We Walk PHL website and learn more about how to join and get involved. Who knows, one walk may change your life.
