Walk Kansas

Tiny WK Cover

Walk Kansas is an 8-week walking program encouraging family members, schoolmates, co-workers, friends, and neighbors to come together as a team. Participants will set goals for health and fitness. A Team Captain will recruit 5 people to make a 6-member team who will collectively walk 423 miles, the distance across Kansas. (For 2022 smaller teams or Solo teams are allowed, a team can be formed with only 4 members or you can be on your own on a special route.)

This is an exceptional opportunity to promote health and fitness to the entire family, from small children to grandparents, while building family unity. It's a great way to enjoy time together as a group or one-on-one with a child or teenager.
