Our 2nd Annual Walktober Challenge will begin Sunday, October 6th. The competition requires that each participant count steps daily toward a weekly total reported via the Patriot Point hyperlink sent out by the Patriot Pack Leader at your school/workplace. The first report of steps will be on Monday, October 14th, which includes all steps from the preceding week (October 6th-13th) Weekly winners will be announced AND the grand prize winner this year will earn the Walktober Winner Tshirt as well as a Trak Shak gift card. This four week competition will be counted as an “event” in this year’s Movement Medal total. Participants must complete all four weeks of the competition for this event to count toward your 5 event total. 10,000 steps equals 5 miles and is a great daily goal. I look forward to seeing those step totals start coming in! Most Smartphones have a pedometer option as well as apps that are available to assist you in this competition. Pedometers are available at any sporting goods store and are fairly inexpensive $8-$20. You have until Sunday of this week to get the necessary pedometer or app. Remember-Start counting on Sunday, Oct. 6. First Report is on Monday, October 14.
