Walk with a Purpose


To walk our earth is to engage, to lift our spirits, to experience the joy and enlightenment that comes with traveling down new and old roads, together. Walking will set you free. And EverWalk will connect you with a worldwide community of fellow walkers!

Diana Nyad & Bonnie Stoll


Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll founded EverWalk in 2016 to inspire and encourage people around the world to get up, get out into the magnificent outdoors, and walk together!

In our EverWalk World, the soul of our commitment is to walk a mile a day.
And, to be clear, this is a different commitment than walking once or twice a week longer distances.
The EverWalk Mile is a life-spirit commitment. It’s the concept of folding in that mile, come hook or come crook, into your lifestyle.
By all means, embrace your adventures of five, eight, ten miles.
But we are pushing you to also make ONE MILE your everyday commitment.

So why not make 2022 your time to groove that mile into the happy habits of your days?
Look at it this way: You say to yourself at age 90:  Imagine that:  I’ve been walking a mile every day for the past 37 years!
Imagine what that commitment will mean to the whole of your life.

-Diana Nyad, EverWalk co-founder
