Just after the 7:30 news, Jami Haberl of the Healthiest State Initiative joined us in the studio to talk about the Iowa Walking College Fellows (which are all women)! There are 15 fellows that hail from 14 communities touching almost one million Iowans across 13 counties. The fellowship enables community advocates from across the state to participate in a six-month training program designed to strengthen local efforts to make communities more walkable and livable. The goal is to get all Iowans moving at least 30 minutes of every day. More information is available at www.iowahealthieststate.com/iowa-walking-college or www.americawalks.org.
Monday on Van and Bonnie, we'll be giving away tickets to Daryl Hall & John Oates and Tears for Fears with a special acoustic performance by opener Allen Stone! Plus you'll have two more chances to win in the Make Your Wallet Great Again contest. Ken Chester will join us to wrap-up the New York Auto Show and what's going on at Camp Sunnyside? We'll find out Monday!
Have a blessed Easter!
