 Walk Smart, Virginia!
The Governor's "Walk Smart, Virginia!" program Was created to reach out to youth by involving schools, families, and communities to help them build skills that empower our students to make smarter activity choices for a healthier future. The basic goal of the program is to get students to move more and sit less in their daily routines. 

Students log on to the website and set goals, enter the number of steps they have walked, and view a map of Virginia and their position along the walking route they have selected. The website will also include information about the locations along the route and integrate aspects of history, geography, government, recreation, a steps-to-miles converter, a body-mass index calculator, and links to nutrition and physical activity Web sites.
