WHAT IS A NET WALK?


Networking + Walking = Netwalking




NetWalk with the Chamber is all about getting outside, having a stroll and meeting new people. It's that simple.


Walking opens the free flow of ideas and is a simple and robust solution to the goals of increasing creativity, increasing physical activity and also increasing your business network while taking a walk.


According to studies, just one 10-minute walk a week can help you reduce your chances of early death as well as maintain or lose weight.





The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce and Growing Healthy Habits Community have partnered on this innovative new experience as part of the Chamber's Wellness Initiative.


NetWalk with the Chamber will be held the first Wednesday of the month April - September. The location changes every month. Check out all the NetWalk events at www.orrvillechamber.com
