The Danville Moving Towards the Bright Side Walk began on National Walking Day, April 1 and will take place throughout the months of April and May. Participants are encouraged to log their miles walked here daily no matter where they are taken. Parents, log your kids’ miles too; this is a challenge for everyone of all ages.
May is National Bike Month. Miles completed on a bicycle indoors or outdoors can be counted as well as walking and running miles.
