WalkMassachusetts

After over 30 years of statewide advocacy as WalkBoston, conversations with partners and community members across the state, and a new Strategic Plan, we have changed our name to WalkMassachusetts. Here's why.

WalkMassachusetts makes walking safer and easier in Massachusetts to encourage better health, a cleaner environment and more vibrant communities. Our website is centered on the work we do with people and organizations in communities across the state.
