The Six-Week Walking Group Challenge

The six-week walking group challenge can occur at any time between Monday, September 24th and Friday, November 30th. Members can walk independently, in pairs, or as a group. Participants can track either steps or minutes. Each group decides its own "rules" and what's best for its members.

Contact Jeff Campbell if you want to organize a Wild Wonderful Walking Group in your community, with your organization, or through your network (i.e. countywide worksite, churches, organizations, etc). Please plan on recruiting at least 15 walkers.

If you are interested in participating, please visit our "Contact Us" web page and on the Type of Request, select "Walking Group Challenge". Need more information or details on How to Sign Up? Click here to check out our Media web page. We'll be in touch!
