Heart Foundation Walking

 **All Heart Foundation Walking groups suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 virus epidemic** 

Heart Foundation Walking is a fun, social and easy way to be active and best of all it’s FREE!

It is Australia’s largest network of community-based walking groups with over 17,000 active members. Groups are led by volunteer walk organisers and we have a number of them located across the City of Salisbury.

Joining or starting a walking group in your area is a great way to get active and meet new people. Every walking group is different - varying in size, duration of walk, level of difficulty and meeting times and places.

Interested in starting a walking group in your area?

Being a volunteer walk organiser is fun and easy - you only need one other walker to start a group and it should only take 5 minutes on top of the time actually spent walking. You will also receive great support and resources.

The Heart Foundation Walking app

The Heart Foundation Walking app helps keep track of your walking and rewards you for stepping it up.
Download the app today and you'll be able to take part in our regular events and challenges. We'll also connect you to our heart health information and a walking community across the country.

Individual walkers can simply download the Heart Foundation Walking app. Once they register, the app will sync with their step counter (Apple Health, Google Fit or Fitbit) and will automatically enter the walker into prize draws when they reach major milestones
