The checkered flag has dropped on the first Moving Starke County Forward Healthy Challenge Series goal. Participants were charged with notching 250 exercise miles from May 11th through the 29th. The theme is NASCAR, so the first goal was billed as the Daytona 250. Participants lapped that and then some, logging more than 700 miles.
The next challenge is the Hamlet 500. Participants can sign up or log miles on the Moving Starke County Forward Facebook page. Registration and mileage log sheets are also available at Knox City Hall or at the Starke County Public Library branches. NASCAR prizes will be awarded after Aug. 30th. Meanwhile, the individual or team who turns in the most miles from June 15 through the 30th will win a Starke County t-shirt.
