Take a Walk Outdoors Day is January 20, 2022. And as the name suggests, it’s a day to step outside for a walk alone or with someone.

For best results, try an early morning walk because only the early morning sun generates Vitamin D, and 75% of adults don’t get enough of it. You can find many places to walk or enjoy your favorite winter outdoor activity here at: pottstownfoundation.org/mission-healthy-living/outdoor-activity-finder#phawf #walkoutdoors #pottstownareaoutdoors #pottstownpa ...
