The We're Out Walking (WOW) Program is a 12-week health and fitness program for everyone who lives, works, and plays in Evanston.  WOW is a well-established program in the Evanston community with documented ability to improve health and wellbeing of community members.  WOW started 13 years ago in the City of Evanston with the purpose of promoting physical activity in women, expanding in 2017 to include men and women of all ages and ability levels.  

The program is sponsored by the Evanston Health and Human Services Department with the support of many community partners and includes group walks, health and fitness classes, giveaways, and more!  Participants sign up here: and have access to an event calendar full of free physical activity opportunities, health/nutrition seminars, and neighborhood walks.  They win prizes donated by local businesses for participation in weekly challenges.  We encourage community members of all ages and ability levels to join this community-wide physical activity movement!
