Volunteer Walk Leader Manual

This manual was developed by Jean Butel in partnership with Linda Pekuri and the Sumter Active Lifestyles Coalition.  It was used in conjunction with an in-person training session for community volunteers interested in starting a walking group. The manual provides relevant and useful information to assist walk leaders and enhance the walk leader experience. It contains the information and tools needed to be a successful volunteer walk leader. When using these materials, please use the following citation: Volunteer Walk Leader Manual. Sumter County Active Lifestyles, 2008.  http://www.sumtercountyactivelifestyles.org/Walk_Leader_Manual.pdf; http://www.sumtercountyactivelifestyles.org/Sample_forms_for_manual.pdf

Please note: While moderate intensity physical activity is safe for most people, walking leaders should be aware that sedentary people should use judgment concerning their own particular health status and consult a physician as needed.
