Can eight weeks change your life and improve your health? Taking part in Walk Across Arkansas might just do that! While participants don’t actually walk across the state, participants come from all over Arkansas.

Walkers can sign up to log their minutes of activity as individuals or be a part of a team of two to ten members. Addie Wilson, extension program associate-health for the U of A Division of Agriculture states, “Most of our participants enjoy the camaraderie they share with team members.

Walking is the most common activity, but any type of physical activity that increases heart rate for at least 10 consecutive minutes counts.” Contact the Scott Co. Extension Service at 479-637-2173 to join and be a part of the Walk Across Arkansas team.
