Walk Kansas

This year I would love to meet you, as well as encourage you to be accountable to walking. 

Walk Kansas kickoff is March 31st and runs through May 25th.  Each Monday between 5:00-5:30 pm and each Wednesday between 12:15-12:45 pm beginning on April 1st, 2024, I will have a sign in sheet located at the Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden.  The demonstration garden is located on the Lyon County Fairgrounds.  Once you “sign in”, then you are on your own to walk the trail and log your activity.  Each week participants that signed in will be put into a drawing for a prize.  Winners may get their prize the following week at sign in or they can pick it up at the extension office.  I hope that you find this sign in as a great way to get motivated to get those steps in and begin making a healthy habit stick.
