World Walking Activity

As part of Parklea’s health walks, individuals also are able to take part in the World Walking Activity, that is an ongoing activity at Parklea Branching Out. World Walking was originally set up by a group of people with heart disease who decided to keep active by going for a walk.

All steps that the group or associates walk is added to their virtual tour. At this time the group’s accumulated steps have been calculated and they have managed to walk the same distance of what it would be from Port Glasgow to Istanbul. This amounts to 5,208,780 steps so far. A short video taken on one of Parklea’s walks can be accessed via our You Tube Channel.
