Active Living

Walk with a Doc

WWAD is a year-round walking program that operates in communities across America, and is right here in Stark County! This program was created to encourage physical activity for people of all ages, and provides an opportunity to walk with and get health questions answered by local physicians. Community members are invited to join in the monthly walks (2nd Thursday of every month). Dates and times can be found on our calendar.

Stark Walks

Live Well Stark County began developing walking routes in Northeast Canton in 2015. These routes have been labeled the Stark Walks routes, and are continuing to increase throughout the county. Live Well Stark County and United Way of Greater Stark County partnered on this Stark Walks initiative in the Summer of 2016 and are combining resources and expertise to increase the amount of routes available, make them available in more communities throughout Stark County, and encourage community members to exercise right in their own neighborhood!

Stark Walks & Runs Club

The Stark Walks & Runs club was established to engage the community to enjoy walking and running together, and is made possible through the combined effort of numerous local organizations. Stark Walks & Runs club is FREE to anyone 18+ years of age interested in walking and/or running.
