The national walking advocacy organization America Walks recently featured Decorah's own Ann Mansfield for her commitment to walk 10 - 11 miles a day while undergoing treatment for stage 2 breast cancer.
Mansfield, R.N., M.S.N. and project coordinator for NE Iowa Food & Fitness Initiative, was awarded a Walking College Fellowship by the national advocacy organization in 2015. The Walking College is an interactive, online educational program for walkable community advocates. Each year, Walking College Fellowships are awarded to people who demonstrate a passion for making their communities more walkable and livable.
