To be delivered to The West Virginia State House, The West Virginia State Senate, and Governor Earl Ray Tomblin

Petition Statement

Increase funding to footpaths, bicycle paths, rail-trails, sidewalks, and other facilities for active transportation to encourage West Virginia residents to walk and cycle, thus helping reduce obesity and the impared health created thereby, which would make our workforce more productive and our health care systems less burdened by patients with preventable conditions.
There are currently 6 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

West Virginia is one of the least fit states in the Union. We lead in diabetes, heart disese, stroke, and other health conditions caused by or exacerbated by a sedentary lifestyle. And there are infrastructural barriers to an active lifestyle here--lack of footpaths, bicycle paths/lanes, sidewalks, etc.
