May 1 – August 1, 2016
Challenge yourself to create a healthy walking habit this year by participating in the annual Community Walking Challenge organized by the Fit Youth Initiative and the OSU Extension office. Stop by the library to register and receive your tracker, a chain, and your first foot token. Check off a block in the tracker for each 15 minutes of walking (above your regular daily activity). Every three hours of walking (one line on the tracker), earns you another colorful foot token! Before you know it, you’ll fill up 10 lines. That’s 30 hours of walking! After completing line 10 of the tracker, you will be eligible for a free t-shirt. Turn in your tracker at the library no later than August 3 to receive your T-shirt. Call us at 330-343-6123 for more information or stop by the library to sign up!
In addition to the walking challenge, the Fit Youth Initiative has also organized several hikes and other events throughout the summer to help you have fun, stay fit, and reach your walking goal. Activities include 5 adventure hikes. Participating in these special events will earn you special foot tokens only available at these hikes. If you participate in 3 of the adventure hikes, you will also receive a free walking stick. All activities are listed on the tracker.
