Walk Kansas has started. Teams of 6 people are recording their miles. If each person on the team walks 2.5 miles 5 times a week over 8 weeks they will record enough miles to reach across Kansas which is 423 miles.
In addition this program provides 9 wonderful newsletters. In Harvey we are providing Learn and Energize sessions each Thursday of Walk Kansas.
Everyone is welcome to attend these sessions. We have a variety of session leaders who have expertise in the area of exercise, health and wellness. You won’t want to miss this opportunity.
