Moving Starke County Forward Walking Challenge Underway

The 6th annual Moving Starke County Forward Walking Challenge began July 1 and continues through Oct. 31.

The goal of this year’s campaign, Starke County Moon Walkers, is to improve the health of residents in the Starke County community. Participants are encouraged to walk, run, bike or actively participate in any physical activity of their choice – just log your miles for a chance to win prizes. Those under the age of 18 will win a pair of shoes if they sign up before July 15. Adult participants will be entered into a single random drawing for a Fitbit at the end of the campaign on Halloween.

A family walk is sponsored by the Starke County Youth Club at 3 p.m. Moving Starke County Forward will also invite residents to be part of their entry in the parade on Saturday, July 7 with registration at 12:30 p.m. at the Knox High School parking lot.
