High School Walking Club / by Kevin Swantek

This is a great story, and also what I want Sole of Seattle to be able to grow into. Franklin Community High School (in Franklin, Indiana), with the help of teacher and students, created a walking group with the soul purpose of helping a student who was emotionally struggling from the loss of his father, and physically struggling with his weight.

This is the truest sense of building community through walking. What started as an effort to help one young man, is now growing within the Franklin high school to help others as well. I hope you'll take the time to read this article, and maybe it can inspire all of us to create something similar that will work to promote health, confidence, camaraderie, and friendships in our own communities.
