Iowa is currently ranked the 19th healthiest state in the U.S. The Healthiest State Initiative was created to make us the healthiest state by 2016. Yesterday the Start Somewhere Walk was held as the kickoff of the initiative. Iowans gathered at businesses, schools, grocery stores and other places all over the state for a 1K walk at noon. It was a great day for the quick 10-15 minute walk. It was held to inspire Iowans to improve their health and happiness.
