FreeWalkers -- Walk everywhere with us!

All other scheduled walks are postponed through July 10th and until further notice, based on the guidance regarding the coronavirus from the CDC, the Governors of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, and numerous local officials. We look forward to being able to walk with you again soon.


Message from the President


Though the good news is certain things are beginning to open up, as an organization we are choosing to be cautious and still hold off on walking as a large group. Of course, this doesn't mean you, as individuals, can't reach out to each other and do your own personal walks together. FreeWalkers is about connections, community and motivating each other to get out walking - go for it!

We stay hopeful to start sometime in the summer, perhaps with limited participants.I am, however, planning another ZOOM get-together for Monday, June 29th at 6 pm. Details to follow.... hope you will join us!

In the meantime, our executive board stays busy behind the scenes.We've welcomed Cory Storch to the board after several years of trying to recruit him. Cory, an active FreeWalker, brings a wealth of expertise in the non-profit world.

A shout out to Yohana Osorio, a new mother, who needed to step down as treasurer with her busy schedule; she is, however, still our fabulous Stroll & Roll coordinator. Charles Updike, our data guru has stepped into the treasurer position and will help keep our budget on track.

We'd love to hear about where you’re walking, and if you have any ideas for future walks where we can maintain social distancing and still be together.

Stay well and stay safe,

Risa Olinsky
