Kelsey Schnicker and Jessica Shauwecker founded KC Walk Club in hopes of connecting with other local ladies.

Now, every weekend club members meet up for a short walk, capping off the event with a stop at a local eatery.

“Making friends as an adult can be hard, but I feel like I’ve truly met some amazing people through walk club,” member Meghan Schmitt said. “Plus, who doesn’t love ending a walk with a good latte every weekend?”

The free group now has almost 600 members and celebrates its one-year anniversary Thursday, Aug. 24.

To commemorate this monumental stride, the club will walk along Berkley Riverfront on Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 6:30 p.m. The walk will end at Betty Rae’s, where its first walk took place. A full circle moment.

Anyone interested in joining should simply show up wearing their best walking shoes.
