Team captains sought for Parker County Walk Across Texas

March 12, 2012 by Anonymous

Through a modest increase in daily activity, most Americans can improve their health. Walk Across Texas is a program that persuades and motivates people of all ages to get started. Participants need a team of eight people, with one person being designated as the “team captain.” The team who walks farthest “across Texas” will win, but everyone who participates will take home a healthy habit - walking for fitness.

Team members report their daily mileage to the team captain, and the team captain reports the individual and team total miles on the walkacrosstexas.tamu.edu website or to the Extension office at the end of each week by telephone (817-598-6168), fax (817-598-6168) or e-mail erin.wade@parkercountytx.com.

Teams are not required to walk or ride together, although they may if they desire. Teams simply pool their mileage each week to work toward “walking across Texas.” Members may walk, jog, ride a bike, skateboard, dance, roller blade, treadmill, swim, spin and/or run. A large Texas map showing the progress of teams will be in Texas AgriLife Extension, Parker County office, and at other various locations.

The eight-week journey begins April 2 and continues through May 28.

Walk Across Texas is sponsored by Texas AgriLife Extension, which is looking for volunteers to serve as team captains.

To sign up as a team captain, go by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Parker County office at 604 North Main St., Suite 200 in Weatherford or call 817-598-6168.
