Iowa is ranked #9 in the nation when it comes to being physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy, but Governor Branstad thinks we can claim the top spot by 2016. Wednesday, the governor is encouraging the state to get together and walk at least ½ of a mile during the day. Darren McGriff and the staff at Work Systems Rehab and Fitness will be leading a 1 mile walk around Pella beginning at noon. McGriff says that each day we have opportunities to be active, and he suggests taking the stairs instead of elevators and escalators, or walking with friends, family, or pets to get started.
