Let’s Walk Kansas!

K-State Research and Extension is pleased to offer Walk Kansas, a health initiative designed to help you move more, eat better and live life to the fullest.

Here are the options for your team:

  • Challenge 1: 8 Wonders of Kansas! This journey requires each person to get 2 ½ hrs of activity per/wk.
  • Challenge 2: Cross Country, which requires 4 hrs of activity per person/week.
  • Challenge 3: Little Balkans to Nicodemus –This requires 6 hrs of activity per person/week.

This year, each Post Rock District Walk Kansas captain of a team of 5-6 will receive a Walk Kansas waist pouch! Registration is now open at www.walkkansasonline.org or by visiting any Post Rock District Extension office.  If registering online, be sure to choose “Post Rock District” as your county/district.

Congratulations Walk Kansas Participants!

Walk Kansas was such a fun, eventful, and definitely healthful 8 weeks this year! We gave away fantastic prizes, had 5 area poker walks, and developed a new facebook group to stay connected and motivate each other, along with much more. Collectively, Post Rock District had 386 walkers and walked 40,090 miles! I would say that this was a great year to be in Walk Kansas.

If you haven’t participated in Walk Kansas, you have been missing out and we hope you join us next year. To find out more about Walk Kansas, please visit our Walk Kansas homepage here.
