Never ask for permission to save your own life

We walk to heal our bodies, inspire our daughters, and reclaim the streets of our neighborhoods.

Walking is a powerful health intervention, a means of organizing and a lifeline to those who feel alone. It’s the single best thing a woman can do to improve her health.

When you walk 30 minutes a day, it reduces:

Heart disease risk by

51%

Stroke rates by

53%

Diabetes risk by

58%

Depressions rates by

47%

Anxiety rates by

41%

Beyond the physical and mental health benefits, we use walking as a strategy for community-wide healing. We rejoice in the very vibration of taking a walk—a chance to slow down, to reconnect with our families, reclaim our streets, heal generations, rewrite history, and advance real solutions for health justice.

We know walking changes things. A personal discipline of daily walking can transform your life. GirlTrek is here to help you start walking towards your healthiest life today and we’ve curated special resources to help encourage and guide you.

Black History Bootcamp

We are protectors and amplifiers of Black stories and culture.

Black History Bootcamp is a viral sensation and a first-of-its-kind walking podcast centered on Black stories and lessons from our ancestors. Through a series of 21-day walking meditations, co-founders Morgan and Vanessa reflect on stories of Black resilience and resistance to help Black women navigate through these uncertain times. These conversations offer a space to think through practical solutions to manage stress, reconnect, reclaim joy, and say “NO” to the weight of the world by walking and talking for 30 minutes a day.
