Walk Kansas March 17

What is one of the best things you can do for your body, mind and spirit? You guessed it – move your way, every day!! K-State Research and Extension is pleased to offer this health initiative designed to help you move more, eat better and live life to the fullest. Regular exercise can help you live longer, maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of developing some cancers, reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke, reduce diabetes risk, boost your brain power, improve your mood and relieve stress. Wow – there isn’t a pill that can offer all of those benefits!!

Walk Kansas is a team-based program, meaning that you are part of a 6-member team and together you will select a goal (challenge) to work toward during the 8 weeks. Here are the options for your team.

Challenge 1: Discover the 8 Wonders of Kansas! This journey requires each person to get 2 ½ hours of moderate activity per week.

Challenge 2: Go Cross Country from Troy to Elkhart, which requires 4 hours of activity per person per week.

Challenge 3: Little Balkans to Nicodemus – a trail that takes you through southeast Kansas and then up to Nicodemus with interesting stops along the way. This requires 6 hours of activity per person/week.

Each person logs minutes of moderate/vigorous activity and these are converted to Walk Kansas miles (15 minute = 1 mile) on the website. A complete description of activities that count for Walk Kansas and how to report minutes is provided after you sign up.

To register online at If you already have a team, wait for your captain to register the team online. You will receive a message by email asking you to complete registration and give your consent to participate. Your captain will be responsible for collecting fees for the entire team. If you don’t have a team, and would like to join one, go online and register as an individual. The Barber County Extension office will connect you with a team that has similar goals.

You can also register with paper forms: Contact the Barber County Extension Office at 620-886-3971 for these forms or more information. The cost of Walk Kansas is $8 per person. This provides you with a weekly newsletter and prizes at the end. This year, all teams completing the challenge they select will be entered into a drawing for gift certificates to Barber County businesses.
