The Walk Georgia blog, found at http://site.extension.uga.edu/walkgeorgia/, supplements the online program, providing daily information ranging from recipes to website and app recommendations, to information on state parks and wellness articles authored by Extension personnel. The program also maintains a presence on social media – Facebook, Twitter @WalkGa , Instagram @walkgeorgia and Pinterest.
Walk Georgia is supported in part by a grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation. The goal of this public-private partnership is to help improve the lives of Georgia residents through simple ways of being more physically active and making healthy lifestyle choices. Coca-Cola shares our belief that it will take all of us – businesses, government, communities, academia – coming together to address the serious, complex issue of obesity. We are pleased to be partnering with The Coca-Cola Foundation to improve the health and wellness of Georgians.
