What is a Moai?
The notion of a Moai - which roughly means "meeting for a common purpose"-originated as a means of social support in the longevity hotspot of Okinawa, Japan.
What is a Walking Moai?
A Walking Moai is a group of 5-12 people who regularly gather together to share conversations while taking a walk. Ideally, the group commits to walking together 1-2 times per week over the course of ten weeks.
Did you know!? Over 50 Moais have completed 10 weeks in Douglas County, with some continuing beyond 10 weeks. One of our Walking Moais has been going strong for 1 year! Wow!

Meet your Moai:
We'll help you form groups of 5-12 people based on where, when, and how fast you want to walk. Bring a friend or come ready to meet one and wear comfortable shoes for a launch walk after groups form. All are welcome!
