Walk Kansas

Walk Kansas, an annual health and wellness program sponsored by K-State Research and Extension, is a team-based challenge that encourages people to increase their physical activity. If teams of 6 people meet the minimum guidelines for physical activity over 8 weeks, they could collectively walk 423 miles, approximately the distance across the state of Kansas. 
It is recommended to get 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a week- or about 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. This can be walking, jogging, running, biking or swimming. An easy way to see if your activity is at a moderate level is the Talk Test, if you can barely hold a conversation but not sing you are there! With this program you will get a weekly newsletter with helpful tips on a variety of health topics, build healthy habits and have fun with friends and family!
