Walk Kansas

Walk Kansas is a group based program that encourages healthy habits such as exercising more, eating more fruits and vegetables, and provides an environment for healthy communication among team members through goal setting and friendly motivation to help each other reach these goals. Groups of six people will form a team, choose a team captain, and decide what challenge they want to accomplish. During the course of this eight week program team members will track their physical activity and their fruit, vegetable, and water intake. Registration for 2021 is now open! Go to www.walkkansasonline.org.
