Walk For Lunch - Decatur Coming in May

From: Decatur Education Foundation

After a very successful season in Downtown Atlanta, Walk For Lunch is looking to make new strides in the City of Decatur, the most walkable city in the State of Georgia. Walk For Lunch - Decatur is planned for May 3 - 26th, 2011 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Registered walkers can walk between the hours of 11:30 am - 1:15 pm to the Decatur Square.

WALK FOR LUNCH ( is an inexpensive lunch hour walking program that includes healthy lunches and benefits local children. For every walker registered, Decatur Education Foundation will receive $1! So get fit, eat well and support the youth of our community all during your lunch hour.

Walkers can organize teams or sign up as an individual walker for $25 at can pre-order healthy lunches from Subway Restaurant, Pita Pit and Sammiches N' Stuff, all local Decatur restaurants. In addition to the lunches, each walker will be invited to attend a Health & Wellness Expo and be given 1 - 2 mile walking maps. Each walker will also receive a Walk For Lunch - Decatur T-shirt, daily goodies from our sponsors and an opportunity to walk with the Mayor of Decatur, Decatur Firefighters, coworkers, friends and neighbors. The walking program including the lunch pick-up will take 30 - 60 minutes.

How does Walk For Lunch work?

Walk For Lunch has created suggested 1, 2 or 3 mile courses that all lead to a centrally located lunch pick-up station. All walkers will be encouraged to start walking from their location anytime during the hours of 11:30 AM - 1:15 PM. At the lunch pick-up station, walkers can participate in our daily activities and win prizes from our sponsors, relax and eat their lunches and then walk back to their home or business feeling energized and renewed.
