Walk the Walk and Move a City - Active Life Style

YOM 1-2-3 Volunteer Approach.

Walk the Walk and Move a City

Yonkers On the Move (YOM) is an active life style campaign and walking program.
We want to move a city and we are well on our way! We have over 630 campaign sign-ups, the support of the Yonkers mayor and others. For nine years the initiative conducts an annual campaign that includes a YOM WALK 20 Challenge and also themed events/walks.

And, for those already walking, to have fun and keep inspired through Yonkers On the Move.
