How does Walk Kansas work?

Co-workers, family members, friends and neighbors form teams of 6 people who will track minutes of physical activity and food choices during the 8-week challenge.

Each team identifies a goal, or challenge, it wants to reach. Three challenges are offered. Challenge 1 is the distance across the state, and would require each member to reach the minimum guidelines for physical activity, 150 minutes per week. To reach Challenge 2, the team must go across and back, or 5 hours per week for each participant. Challenge 3 takes the team 1200 miles around the perimeter of the state, a 6-hour-per-week goal for each person.

Walking isn't the only activity that counts. Read through your "Move More – Feel Better, Physical Activity Guide" to learn about moderate and vigorous activities that count, and strengthening exercises. Just a reminder – any activity you report should be performed for a minimum of 10 consecutive minutes.

Participants record daily fruit and vegetable consumption.

Team members report progress to their team captain each week. Team captain reports totals to local program each week.

Friendly competition can be motivating so check team progress on this website.  Call the office to get more information at 620-384-5225
