The CMT Ten Toe Express, a walking program that links MetroLink, MetroBus and using your own ten toes to access your community and get healthy, was recently highlighted in a Missouri Foundation for Health report on example case studies that have a success record of changing policy and increasing physical activity in specific populations in Missouri.
CMT initiated the Ten Toe Express Program in 2007 with the idea of replicating the Portland model in the St. Louis region. Since that time, more than 7,400 ST. Louisans have had the thought that it was a good idea to get on board transit using their own Ten Toes with CMT’s help. The program has been expanded to the Illinois side of the river with the help of the St. CLair County Transit District, and Denver replicated our program in their area.
As we begin to plan for the Fall 2012 Ten Toe Session, I hope you will consider giving the Ten Toe a try – sign up for the entire session, come out for one or two walks or if you work, consider joining our new Commuter Noon Walk Session which will be held in Downtown St. Louis.
