The focus of City Walk is to showcase how walking is transforming cities across the county and, in the process, reconnecting us with our bodies. 

Expanding on short films produced for everybodywalk.orgCity Walk explores walking for public television networks KCET and LinkTV from the perspective of experts and pedestrians. It also captures a growing nationwide effort to reverse the trend of a sedentary lifestyle by spotlighting walkable neighborhoods in major cities. The call to action: discover urban areas by foot. 

“We are excited to offer an innovative multifaceted series to our viewers and invite them to explore their public, urban landscape with multiple engagement opportunities on the air, online and beyond,” said Juan Devis, Vice President of arts and culture programming at KCETLink. “We are pleased to help shepherd urban exploration into the public consciousness through walking and encouraging a healthier lifestyle.”

City Walk brings the Every Body Walk campaign—to get adults walking 30 minutes a day, five days to achieve better health—to television, tablets, laptops, and smartphones, with messages about making walking accessible wherever you are. While everyone is starved for time, a 30-minute walk can be spliced into your day by walking to transit, walking to work, walking to lunch, walking the dog, and even taking the stairs. Try just a few of these options; you’ll be surprised how quickly the time adds up. 

“It’s a well known fact that the human body was built to walk. As a family physician, I talk to patients everyday about the importance of walking and I even write prescriptions for walking,” said Bob Sallis, MD, of Kaiser Permanente in Fontana, CA. “A 30-minute walk, five days a week can change lives and improve health.” An avid walker and adviser to Every Body Walk, Dr. Sallis has walked in many of the locations featured in the City Walk series.

Manifesto was handling a lot of the rebuild work and as such was very busy so today he was stuck making sure the jobs could get handled, with all the new recruits it was becoming increasingly frustrating not to rip everyone’s heads off. Too many questions not enough competence and honestly he was getting more than a little agitated from it. Right now he was waiting on someone Manifesto had send word for for a rather dangerous job.

Of course since Fang was the oldest member now and arguable one of the most skilled, he was stuck going on difficult and dangerous jobs new recruits could not. And with all this outside help it was also hard not to be suspicious of every damn body that walked through the doors, but it was a need. And hiring all this outside help meant they could go on dangerous jobs without the loss of its own personal members, if they survived it meant potential experienced recruits.

"Uhm sir?" A new recruit walked and he just knew he’d be stuck there for an hour.

"Go find someone else I’m busy" Growling out with a glare, effectively scaring him away.Looking always grumpy and toting around a blind eye with a large scar over it, made him more intimidating. Now he was just waiting for this person to arrive so they could get going on a job, and away from all the new annoying bodies he was working with.
