Vanessa Garrison of GirlTrek gives the DC Walking Summit Welcome Address. She talks about the tribe of people who have all come together in a collaboration due to their vision and passion for walking.

The Every Body Walk! 2013 Walking Summit, held October 1–3, 2013 brought together Every Body Walk! partners, nonprofit, civic, and business leaders along with new allies, who shared news, views, and ideas to boost the prevalence of walking and increase community walkability. Join national and local leaders to engage in inspiring conversations and sessions that will build capacity, develop strategies, increase momentum and showcase best practices to increase investments in walking and walkability. The Walking Summit also focused on how to integrate walking and physical activity into a conference format.
