Moving Starke County Forward Reaches China


The participants in the Moving Starke County Forward program have officially walked from the Statue of Liberty, past Hawaii, all the way to Beijing, China. That makes 10,677 miles logged by those involved.

The goal is to go all the way around the world by Sept. 2. Make sure you log your steps every week by calling (574) 772-1272.

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers is hosting a walk and everyone is invited to participate. The walk will be held on Monday, July 29 at Wythogan Park in Knox at 6 p.m. CT.
