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.
Other forms of exercise may be substituted or combined with the walking program. Walk Kansas will accept running, cycling, and other moderate physical activity for the accumulation of miles to “walk” Kansas. There are no limitations on who can participate. If you have the drive to stick with an exercise program, Walk Kansas is for you.
This program has proven successful in weight management while promoting healthy lifestyles. This program works effectively, because anyone can do it. You can do it anytime of the day and you do not have to go to a specific location. The friendly competition among and between teams makes it fun, motivational, and inspirational.
