A California-based group is promoting the power of wellness by using their feet. 

The We Who Walk tour made a stop in Oklahoma City Tuesday while on their walking tour to all 50 state capitols.

The walking group has logged 440,000 steps so far, and added a few more today, when local Oklahoma leaders joined them for a 5-mile walk.

"Ttake time out of their day, maybe to do a 15-minute walk at the start of the staff meeting, do a one-on-one when you're walking. You can do alot of networking and brainstorming all while getting out and being active," said Sue Parks, CEO at Walkstyles.

VIPs from Mercy Health Network, Norman Regional Hospital and many others took part in today's walk.
