Walk Kansas is an 8-week walking program encouraging family members, schoolmates, co-workers, friends, and neighbors to come together as a team. Participants will set goals for health and fitness. A Team Captain will recruit 5 people to make a 6-member team who will collectively walk 423 miles, the distance across Kansas.
This is an exceptional opportunity to promote health and fitness to the entire family, from small children to grandparents, while building family unity. It's a great way to enjoy time together as a group or one-on-one with a child or teenager. Elementary schools can also participate in the Walk Kansas For Kids program available through your County Extension Office. These programs are adaptable and your county agent can help in the planning process.
Midway Extension District rocked #WalkKansas. 133 participants walked more than 15,865 miles. The feedback we hear from participants includes "increased energy," "improved mood," "more restful sleep," "better able to manage stress." That's all from being physically active at least thirty minutes a day. So don't let the end of Walk Kansas 2018 stop you. Maintain that healthy momentum. Keep moving and keep tracking your activities!
