OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring the 2012 Sitka Health Summit, held in October, residents of Sitka, Alaska, chose improving and promoting healthy and safe walkability in Sitka as one of its three community wellness projects for the year.

As part of this effort, the group Walk Sitka was created. Walk Sitka plans to file an application for a Walk Friendly Community award this spring.
