Walk Across Wilson ready to kick off

Staff Reports • Updated Mar 9, 2017 at 8:00 AM

Walk Across Wilson will be March 25 at 9 a.m. at Don Fox Community Park in Lebanon.

The Wilson County Health Council and Tennova Healthcare-Lebanon are sponsors of the event.

Walk Across Wilson is a four-week walking program for teams of between four to eight people. The event is designed to be a unique and fun way to motivate employees, church members and county residents to become physically active. Team members do not have to walk together. Some may prefer to walk outside, while others walk on a treadmill. Participants may choose from a variety of activities by using physical activity equivalents.

Team members register and record their activity using the WAW log available on Facebook @Walk Across Wilson. Each team’s lead will be responsible for team registration, shirt-sizes and collecting WAW logs. 

Name your team lead and turn in your registration form today to get started,” said Wilson County Extension agent Shelly Barnes. “Everyone who participates will take home a healthy habit…and some very cool giveaway items from the event.” 

The proceeds from the event will go directly back to support the needs of all schools in Wilson County and Lebanon Special School District.

Registration is $10 and will include a T-shirt. Registration forms may be mailed to the Wilson County Health Department at 927 E. Baddour Pkwy., Lebanon, TN 37087, attention WAW – Marisa Hunter.
