The Moving Starke County Forward organization’s Another Step Forward campaign is rolling right along.
The organization signed up several walkers, runners, bikers and swimmers in May to take part in making Starke County a healthier place to live. So far, 6,000 miles have been recorded. Officials ask that you turn in your steps as often as possible so miles can be added to the total.
WKVI Radio leads the team event with over 1,000 miles contributed, but it’s not just a team event. Individuals can participate and turn in miles for a chance to win prizes.
You still have time to sign up for the Another Step Forward campaign. Go to any Starke County public library and ask to sign up for the program. All you need to do is log your steps and turn them in daily or once a week to be added to the running total. Several free pedometer apps are available to choose from that can be downloaded on your smart phone to keep track. Email step counts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The campaign ends on Sept. 2.
A celebration event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13 during the Woodstarke event in Wythogan Park.
