Grab your walking shoes. Celebrate healthy living 

It is time to kick-off Walk Kansas 2022! We are looking forward to another fun Walk Kansas season and encourage you to tell others about Walk Kansas. Consider inviting friends and family living  in other comunities to join your  team. Imagine the fun possibilities of connecting with cousins in Michigan or  long-time friends in Utah, for 8 weeks as a Walk Kansas team. Engage teams in your workplace for a spring break to celebrate healthy living.

Three Challenges

Each team of six will choose a challenge to work toward:

Challenge 1:  Discover the 8 Wonders of Kansas! This journey requires each person to get 2 ½ hrs of moderate activity per week.

Challenge 2:  Go Cross Country from Troy (NE) to Elkhart (SW), which requires 4 hrs of activity per person/week.

Challenge 3:  Little Balkans to Nicodemus – a trail that takes you through SE Kansas and then up to Nicodemus with interesting stops along the way. This requires 6 hrs of activity per person/week.

The support of team mates offers a network of support and opportunties to socialize. However, we understand some may prefer a solo option due to Covid or for other reasons. No problem, we have  an option for you.

Solo Option:  This year, a new solo option is offeried. A great way to achieve that personal fitness goal.
