Moving Starke County Forward Participants Log 19,000 Miles


There are only two more weeks in the Moving Starke County Forward walking challenge. The 267 participants involved in the program have walked 19,617 miles in the campaign which has theoretically taken the group from the county west to Lisbon, Portugal.

In order to get the group back to Starke County, over 5,300 miles has to be turned in by Sept. 2. If you haven’t turned in your steps, you are urged to do so in order to be tallied in this quest. If you want to sign up and haven’t had the chance, it’s not too late. Forms are available at the Starke County Library branches.

If you need more information, call Heather Skelly, Wellness Specialist at IU Health Starke Hospital, at (574) 772-1272.
