Walking Challenge Starting Off on the Right Foot

The Moving Starke County Forward Walking Challenge is going quite well.

It is the challenge of those involved to collectively walk the distance from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge and so far 885 miles have been logged. The bar may be raised a little as the results have shown that a 3,000 mile trip will be easily attained.

Two hundred people have registered in the event, including four staff members here at WKVI. Heather Skelly, athletic trainer at IU Health Starke Hospital, reminds you to turn in your weekly totals so your effort counts.

It’s not too late to sign up. You can find a registration and tracking form at the library branches in Starke County or call Heather Skelly at (574) 772-1272. After you register, Skelly will email a link so you can log your steps on a daily or weekly basis online.

The contest runs until Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2.
