More than 8,000 area residents have collectively trekked thousands of miles exploring the St. Louis region through more than 1,200 guided tours. Currently, there are more than 350 older adults each session, that participate in several different Ten Toe Express Walking Groups. And, new participants sign up each session. To help meet demand, CMT is looking for additional volunteer walk leaders for the Spring 2020 Session, which will kick off on Wednesday, April 1, and run for 12 consecutive weeks.
Each Ten Toe Express Walking Group is led by one or two walk leaders. Individuals, a couple or even a group of friends can sign up to be leaders and take turns leading walks throughout the walking session. Training and assistance with planning walks is provided with the needed tools to be able to guide a group of approximately 10-15 fellow walkers as they explore various St. Louis attractions using public transit and their own ten toes. Walk leaders are able to pick the day of the week for excursions and have their group originate from a transit location convenient to them. The time commitment required to be a walk leader vs. a regular walk group participant is minimal.
