“Starke County Walks to the Moon” wraps up on Labor Day. It gives residents the chance to win prizes by walking, running, biking, or taking part in another physical activity and keeping track of their progress.
So far, participants have accumulated over 9,250 miles, according to the organization. Arlene Noble has the most miles logged individually, while the Toto Trekkers continue to lead the team category. Organizers say that once the challenge ends and the miles are added up, the names of the winners will be placed on a plaque in the Starke Hospital lobby.
Moving Starke County Forward was formed in 2012 to improve the health of local residents. The county has consistently ranked near the bottom in state health rankings. For more information, visit Moving Starke County Forward’s Facebook page.
