Walking is an easy way to stay healthy physically and mentally. This walkathon will take place from October 20-November 20. Walkers will walk wherever it is safe, indoors or outdoors, and will track their miles each week. Some walkers may choose to walk in teams.
For those who can't join us in walking, you will have the opportunity to support our walkers through making a pledge. Your pledge will encourage our walkers to achieve their personal and/or team goals in staying healthy mind, body and spirit. We appreciate all the encouragement we can get!
