Registration For Spring Walk Across Arkansas Now Open

September 7th, 2021 by

walkWalk Across Arkansas is back for its fall event September 13 – November 7. 

The eight-week exercise program is organized each spring and fall by the Cooperative Extension Service, part of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, with the goal of helping Arkansans improve their health. Participation is free, and registration opens August 30 online at walk.uada.edu. 

Last spring, 798 Arkansans statewide participated in the Spring 2021 Walk Across Arkansas, logging 1,347,389 minutes. There were 201 participating teams across the state. Many of those participants reported they had more energy, slept better, controlled stress, strengthened relationships, lost weight or inches, and improved their blood panels and blood pressure.  

This event focuses on physical activity minutes and helping participants increase their physical activity. Physical activity can lower the risk of early death, coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and some cancers, according the Centers for Disease Control. Exercise also helps with weight loss and weight control and can improve mood and energy level. Adults should get at least 150 minutes of exercise per week, and youth need at least 60 minutes of exercise daily. 

To participate, find a few friends to form a team and register at walk.uada.edu. Then, from September 13 to November 7, record the amount of time you spend walking or getting any other form of exercise. 

Minutes can be logged online, or you can contact your local county extension agent for paper forms to track minutes until they can be logged online. For more information about Walk Across Arkansas, contact your local county extension agent at (870) 460-6270 or email hmccray@uada.edu.
