Parker County Walk Across Texas
March 21 @ 12:00 pm – May 15 @ 12:00 pm
The Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service invites participants to Walk Across Texas from March 21 to May 15.
Walk Across Texas is an eight-week program to help people of all ages support one another to establish the habit of regular physical activity.
The program is simple, free, and safe. All you need is a team of eight people to get moving, with one person being designated as the “team captain.” The team who walks the farthest across Texas will win, but everyone who participates will take home a healthy habit, walking for fitness.
However, any activity can count toward your journey across Texas.
The Walk Across Texas website allows members to enter their own miles daily. It also has each team member complete their own profile information. Each adult team can have up to eight members. Each youth team can have an unlimited number of youths to participate. For schools, a class or group can be a team.
The Agrilife Extension Service encourages schools, businesses, worksites, organizations, churches, fitness groups, neighborhoods, families, and friends to participate.
Last year Parker County had more than 100 participate. The goal for this year is to double that.
To sign up a team, visit https://howdyhealth.org/programs. There is a video for both youth and adult. This year there are two options: you can sign up your team on the Parker County League or under teams. The league code is: WatL-220303-87744. The League option will allow you to compare your mileage with other teams in Parker County.
Teams must be registered online by Monday, March 28.
