Parkersburg, W.Va. – With spring approaching, it is time to start organizing your walking team. The WVU Medicine Clark Health and Wellness Center will start its annual Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® campaign on Monday, April 15.
Now in its 25th year, the program encourages participants to develop the habit of walking at least one mile a day as a form of exercise. Participants can track and record all miles completed without a cap. This year’s program will run from April 15 through July 23.
“Last year, we had great participation from our employees, area businesses, as well as 4,700 people participating statewide, making Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® the largest exercise program in the state,” Pat Perine, Fitness/Exercise Coordinator, Camden Clark Health and Wellness Center, said. “This program is an excellent way to add regular exercise to your daily routine. It adds a fun element of competition and comradery with fellow teammates. Walking is something that can be done anywhere and goes great lengths into improving health and fitness levels.”
The kick-off walk will take place at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, April 15, at the Camden Clark Medical Center, outdoor walking course (weather permitting).
Participants can sign up individually or form teams and organize for their own business/organization. The registration deadline is April 12.
