What is Walk Georgia?
Walk Georgia is a 12-week program to increase your physical activity in a fun, community-oriented way. You may participate as an individual and track your progress with other individuals in your county and state OR form a team of four to exercise together.
You will track all of your physical activity on-line and translate into “walked miles,” based on average rigor of the chosen activity and the time you were active. When you accumulate miles, you will be able to navigate a map of Georgia and chart your course to “walk” Georgia. As you move throughout this virtual state, you will be able to view fun facts about each county you visit and learn new ways to improve your health. You will also be able to see how you compare to other individuals throughout the state.
We hope you will be inspired to join us and others in your county as we get more active and become healthier!
