Walktober 2020 Wrap Up

Walktober annual walking challenge was a huge success!  Many individuals won prizes for taking on extra challenges like walking a specific trail and just for being out there walking! Team captains earned socks for coordinating and motivating their team. If you were a team captain, contact Redding Recreation to pick up your socks at 225-4095.

Stay tuned for the next challenge, the Healthy Shasta Passport launching January 1st, 2021!

Walk to School 2020

This year students and their families were encouraged to walk throughout the month of October and track their steps. Students from 8 schools throughout Shasta County participated and6 students from 2 schools won Fitbits!

Why Walk to School?



Healthy Shasta aims to encourage people to walk and bike more for both transportation and recreation while working behind the scenes to support the creation of environments that make bicycling and walking easier, safer and more convenient for transportation and recreation.

Did you know you can meet physical activity recommendations for better health by walking briskly for 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week? These bouts of physical activity can be broken into 10 minutes segments – such as walking during your break at work or walking 15 minutes of your commute each workday.
