Walk the RiverWalk Wednesdays is a no-cost summer walking initiative designed to foster a sense of wellness among people living and working in downtown Detroit.  The program is open to anyone interested in participating, however.  Over the course of 16 weeks, registered participants are encouraged to visit the riverfront on Wednesdays to walk during the lunch hour or during scheduled breaks.

Participants check in via an online portal to record progress and to receive a free BCBSM-branded gift for every third check in.  The initiative kicks off on May 10 with a pedometer for all registered participants.  Other gifts include a T-shirt, water bottle and other wellness related gifts.  At the program’s conclusion on August 23, all participants who checked in eight or more times are eligible for a drawing of Detroit RiverFront Conservancy prizes like memberships, engraved paver bricks along the waterfront and more!
