HERstory Nomination Lakshmy Ganesh

"I am so happy to nominate fellow Naperville resident Lakshmy Ganesh who is the Co-founder of “Happy Feet Walkers Club” a non-profit dedicated to women’s fitness (HFWC) in the Naperville area since 2015. 


She thought through the idea of walking, which did not require any investment or equipment but only good shoes and motivation. Happy feet walkers club has helped women in Naperville area by motivating them to walk every day and attain their fitness goals. As the cofounder of the walking club Lakshmy has organized Saturday walks where women walk together in different trails during summer and in the mall during winter in Naperville before COVID 


After COVID happy feet has motivated its members to walk virtually as well and conducted virtual walks. By creating different fitness challenges the walking club has changed the lives of several women. Some if the women have even walked 3,000 - 4,000 miles since joining the walking club. Mayor or Aurora, Richard Irvin recently recognized happy feet walking club for its contributions to Aurora residents and for happy feet walkers club participating in move with Mayor initiative. Happy Feet walkers club has conducted 5k walks and several other events to promote fitness.
