About the Walk

Healthy New Albany (HNA) is proud to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the New Albany Walking Classic® (the Walk) that will take place on Sunday, September 15, 2024. Join North America's largest walking-only race by signing up for either the 5k (3.1 miles) or 10k (6.2 miles) distance. Help us celebrate 20 years of promoting well-being that has impacted thousands of participants from local, state, national, and international communities.

Our Mission

The New Albany Walking Classic® was created to promote physical activity as a vehicle to improve physical, mental, and social well-being. Since its inception in 2005, the Walk has been responsible for the development of health-related programs and services that have benefited people of all ages and from all geographic areas.

 

Because of the Walk, Healthy New Albany, a nonprofit organization was created and has become a national model for community wellness. Since its inception, the Walk has been responsible for raising over three million dollars that has helped support programs and services such as:

  • the Healthy New Albany Farmers Market;

  • the Healthy New Albany Community Garden;

  • I am Thriving, an innovative, comprehensive, and free cancer program serving women from throughout central Ohio;

  • programming for the senior population, Senior Connections in partnership with the City of New Albany

  • Mindful Movements - classes such as yoga and mindfulness training;

  • educational seminars;

  • cooking demonstrations in the M/I Homes Demonstration Kitchen; 

  • the health benefits of nature; 

  • movement activities for school-age youth;

  • the Healthy New Albany Food Pantry;

  • and the creation of the Healthy New Albany Center.

 

100% of the proceeds will support HNA's programs and services.
