The 24th Annual Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® will officially start on Monday, April 16 and run through July 24. The theme of this year’s program is: Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® Stepping it Up!
The program encourages participants to develop the habit of walking at least one mile a day as a form of exercise. “Last year we had nearly 4,000 people participate in a sustained exercise program which included employees and their families and community members,” said Dave Harshbarger, wellness manager for WVU Medicine/Health Sciences Center making Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® the largest exercise program in the state.
Don’t miss a kick-off “walk” that will take place at 11:00 am on Monday, April 16, from the front of J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital. All are welcome and will gather in the lobby, then go for a one mile walk (weather permitting).
Reminder: participants can track and record all miles completed without a weekly cap. Participants can use an Individual Mileage Form to record their miles and submit to their team captain.
Participants can sign up individually or form teams and organize for their own business/organization.
