I was proud to partner once again with the City of Graham Recreation and Parks Department on a wonderful community initiative, Graham Walks.
The Fall 2018 Graham Walks Program lasted for 5 weeks from Sept. 5-Oct. 10. It’s a self-paced program to help participants get at least 7,500 steps a day. Incentives include the opportunity to win one of several grand prizes.
As you can see on the graphic below, the results were impressive. 176 people participated — a record number. Everyone did an amazing job!
As part of Graham Walks, I presented a free noontime walking workshop in downtown Graham called “Stretch & Stride.” I led participants through a routine of stretches that are great for walkers, and then we took a group walk.
Participants who turned in their walking logs and met the goal received a weekly promotional giveaway, and then a t-shirt on the last day of the program.
As a sponsor of Graham Walks, I was excited to offer one of the grand prizes — a curated gift basket of walking accessories. We drew the winner live on Facebook. Congratulations, Lisa Sandridge!
I’m really honored to be a sponsor of Graham Walks. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with Aaron Davis and the Recreation and Parks Department; to connect with the community; and to promote walking and parks, which I’m passionate about. Thank you to Aaron for including me in this amazing program!
