Step It Up! The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities calls on us to increase walking by working together to increase access to safe and convenient places to walk and wheelchair roll and to create a culture that supports walking for Americans of all ages and abilities. This booklet describes the benefits of walking, explains some of the barriers, and offers ideas on how you and the organizations you are involved with can help make walking more accessible to all Americans. It also includes success stories from communities that are already making a difference.
