It's easier to keep healthy New Year's resolutions if there's a friend or two to help keep each other accountable. Grab some friends, step away from the treadmill, and join dozens of others walking around downtown Grand Rapids as they take part in the Chilly Challenge.

The Chilly Challenge is a free seven-week series of 45 minute walks through downtown Grand Rapids. These walks happen all over the city covering multiple themes like types of building, landmarks, and more.

The walks happen during all types of weather, so there will be no cancellations despite weather conditions.

Participants who complete the seven week series will receive a $25 gift certificate to the JW Marriott.

All walks begin in the lobby of the JW Marriott at 12 p.m. on Thursdays, January 9 through February 20.
