The event is organized by Action in Muskogee (AIM), the City of Muskogee Wellness Initiative and Muskogee County Turning Point, a coalition working to make healthy choices easier choices for Muskogee county residents.

Coburn encourages parents, caregivers, teachers and community leaders to act as positive role models to help students develop healthier habits, such as walking to school, work and for short errands, whenever safety permits.
