Have you been wondering where Walk Across Sumner is? It’s usually almost time for it! Don’t worry. The Sumner County Health Committee’s Walk Across Sumner isn’t lost, but we are moving to April! The April 2019 Walk Across Sumner Super Hero 5k and Fun Run promises to be bigger and even better than our previous Walk Across Sumner events!
We are currently planning the 8th Annual Walk Across Sumner campaign (March 2nd -- April 6th). Walk Across Sumner is a county-wide plan that includes a 4 week walking program (complete with a kick-off event and a closing celebration). Participants in the Walk Across Sumner program are encouraged to walk 34.5 miles (the distance across Sumner County – corner to corner) either in their own neighborhoods or by hitting local greenways and walking trails at parks throughout the county. In 2017, we had over 1000 Walk Across Sumner participants, over 400 people present at our 2017 closing event, Fitness Festival, and raised over $14,000 for elementary physical education programs across the county. Walk Across Sumner brings people from the entire county together to get moving and get fit!
