Diane Miller - Walk Georgia is back
Placeholder Image
    If you are already exercising or planning on starting, NOW is a great time to start and take a Web trip across Georgia at the same time.
    Walk Georgia is an 8-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.
    The online component of Walk Georgia provides an activity record to keep track of your weekly physical activity and time. The activity that you record is translated 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.
    On-line registration is Aug. 23-Sept. 14. You can log your activity from Sept. 7-Nov. 1. Find Walk Georgia at
