It has been a longtime dream of EverWalk founders Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll to have an EverWalk app — where our EverWalk Nation can connect around robust and exciting content in a private, safe space.
As of early March, that will be happening!!! The app is currently being approved by the powers that be on the Google Play and Apple stores!! WOOHOO!!
As soon as we get the thumbs up, it will go live. Then you will be able to access our EverWalk Nation content via an app on your smartphone or tablet, as well on any web browser.
This will be the place where all our exciting news and events will be posted first!!
Along with our existing clubs — the EverWalk Nature Club, Book Club, and Snapshot Club — there will be some really cool new places to connect with other EverWalkers from around the world:
There will be a chat area/activity feed where Diana and Bonnie will post regularly about walking, health and fitness, equipment, events and so much more. You can ask them your questions — and they will reply right in this feed!
There will be a section called Walk Our World. In it you will find a chat/activity feed where you can share your favorite walks — around the world or in your own neighborhood — or find out cool places to walk in advance of a trip. You can get suggestions for that epic camino you’re planning or share the resources that helped you plan an epic journey. There will also be a resource area with links to cool walks around the world. We will keep adding new walks — and welcome your suggestions for resources and places to add!
For our gear enthusiasts, there will be a section called Gear Up! In it you will find a chat/activity feed where you can ask questions about walking gear or share your favorite shoes, socks, blister protection, water bottles and more. There will also be a resource area where we will posts articles and links to websites with cool gear — and even things that are on sale!
We do recognize that this will be the third time some of you have been asked to join . . . and we do apologize for this. However, we heard overwhelming response that you wanted something more mobile-friendly. Since we are super proud of all our EverWalk Nation content, we are making this happen. So thank you for your patience as we get this right.
Over the next few weeks, you will be getting information about the app and you will be sent easy links to sign up. Please join and start checking it out.
For those of you who would like a tour, we are offering live Zoom tutorials through the month of March to walk you through the new app. As soon as the app is live, we will send out those times — and you can sign up!
During this time of transition, you will notice that some of our current Clubs will not be accessible the old way. . . .so please make your way over to the new app as soon as it is live!
We know that there are some of you who are huge Facebook fans. And we certainly don’t want to deter you from connecting with other Facebookers. But we will be encouraging everyone to join the new EverWalk Nation — and we will post all content there and not on Facebook. This will include our photo scavenger hunts, news, and even our Livestreams with Bonnie & Diana.
So please JOIN OUR EVERWALK NATION on our new mobile app/web in early March. Please share it with other walkers as well! We are so excited to grow EverWalk with you around the world as we all walk with a purpose — ONWARD!!
