Our stretch of nice weather may have you thinking about getting out and taking a walk. Now you'll have and extra incentive.

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker helped Fargo Cass Public Health kick off their 9th annual Walk This Way Program. Over the next 9 weeks there will be organized walks in and around the metro for people to participate in. The program is to promote the health benefits of walking. They pick the first walk to be in Fargo's Skyway system because of the usually cool March weather.

Kim Lipetzky – Fargo Cass Public Health: “There are always those people who like to go outside regardless of the weather so we usually take a small group but this is the first time that we've ever really been able to have a large group walking out there because the weather has been just perfect lately.”
