Series: Live Smart Texas

Speaker: Michael Lopez, Alice Kirk, Amy Ressler
Length: 59:49 minutes

Walk Across Texas!, a community-based physical activity promotion program, just turned 25 years old – and it’s still going strong. The program, a wellness initiative of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, challenges teams to virtually walk the distance across the state of Texas – 832 miles – over an eight-week period. The program is free to participate and all are encouraged to take part, regardless of fitness level. This webinar will give an overview of the ongoing 25th Year Anniversary celebration and strategies will be shared for how to successfully deliver the online, evidence-based physical activity program. Tips for engaging adult and youth audiences through locally sponsored program events and activities will also be presented.
