Captain's Information

Walk Kansas is back for  another  year  of  fitness fun!



It is time for Walk Kansas 2017! Walk  Kansas  returns  with  an updated  website  that  promises  to be more user friendly. Through www.walkkansas.org you can now log directly onto the website, chat with your team, learn about local events, and more, through a new interactive system. Select  the  My  walk  tab to register your team.

Here is a step-by-step guide for options you have to register your team of six (that includes you as a member of the team). this  year  teams  have  the  option of being  a team of four to offer  more challenges.  Meanwhile, this  year it possible to form a seven member team. these variations in team  members  reflects  that  each of  us  is  starting  at  different  levels  of  activity.   Walk  Kansas  is  about  each of  us  taking  that  first  step  to  a  lifetime  of  fitness.

Register online:

▪Go to www.walkkansas.org and click on My Walk Kansas; then click the yellow Register box. Complete the Walk Kansas Registration page with your personal information, as a member of the team. Choose Atchison County or  Leavenworth County as your group.

▪Next, select a program. Choose one of three challenges for your team: 1) Across the state (423 miles), each person logs 150 minutes per week. 2) Diagonal challenge (763 miles), 4 hrs/person each week. 3) Walk the perimeter (1200 miles), requiring each person to get 6 hrs/week. (You can change this selection later if needed.)

▪ Check Team Captain to create your team. The system will identify your team by the captain’s name and you will have the opportunity to change this later.

▪ List other members of your team and their email address or mailing address. The system will automatically send an invitation (electronic or snail mail) to other team members asking them to register online.

▪The next page asks you to authorize a responsibility agreement and photo release. (Each team member will do this also.)

▪The next tab takes you to the Walk Kansas store where you can place an order for any of the available items.

▪Click the  blue checkout button and follow instructions for payment. The system automatically calculates sales tax on apparel items only, not program registration. If you pay by check/cash, your order will not be placed until payment is received in the Extension Office. We  are  working  on an online  payment  option.  We hope it will be functioning soon.

Return forms and payment (One check per team preferred,  but  the  team  captain can also collect checks from team members as  well.) to the Extension office before March 17.  Team  may  register  after this  date,  but  you  will  be  unable  to  use  the online reporting  system until registration is  complete.
