Walking for Health

You may see a lot more walking on campus these days. We caught up with this contingent last Tuesday as they started a group walk. The College is once again participating in the Walk Across Sumner campaign.  This is a four-week event to encourage people to walk on a regular basis.  The goal is to walk 34.5 miles (the diagonal distance across Sumner County) between Sept. 7 and Oct. 5. Organizers point out that if you walk just 30 minutes each day, 6 days a week you can meet the goal.

There is a bit of friendly competition this year. We have three teams, two in Gallatin and one in Livingston, competing for bragging rights. The Captain of the “Walkie Talkies” is Tami Wallace.  The Captain of the “Witness the Fitness” team is Beth Cooksey. Group walks will be each Tuesday and Thursday at 4:45 p.m., weather permitting. All walking sessions can be counted, not just the group walks on campus.
