Move with the Mayor

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Wisconsin. In many cases, people can prevent heart disease. People can literally take,steps to lower their chance of heart disease and its risk factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. 

Walking is one of the easiest ways to reduce a person’s risk for heart disease. Research shows that walking as little as 30 minutes a day can reduce a person’s risk of heart disease by 40%.

You don’t need special clothes or a gym to walk. All you need is 30 minutes. 

Move with the Mayor is a health and wellness initiative to get our employees walking during their lunch breaks. Since 2015, City of Green Bay has been partners with the National Forum for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention to promote movement throughout the workday. 

Walks will be held at noon starting on the corner of Walnut and Jefferson on the following 2021 dates: September 7, September 14, September 21, September 28, September 29. 

Everyone from the public is welcome to join our 30 minute walks.
