The annual Walk Kansas program is coming up in March and Rhonda Gordon, Family and Consumer Science agent with the Lyon County Extension Office, says it's time to put your teams together.
Approximately 600 people took part in the program in Lyon County last year.
Walk Kansas is now an official partner of Every Body Walk! Launched in January 2011, Every Body Walk! is a campaign aimed at getting Americans up and moving. Along with their partner network, they're working to spread the message that walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week really can improve your overall health and prevent disease.
If you wish to form a team for Walk Kansas, call Gordon at the Lyon County Extension Office, 341-3220.
