your county go the distance toward better health and wellness? Help your county
win the designation of a “Live Well West Virginia Community” by participating
in the Summer Steps challenge.
Summer Steps is a walking program to motivate West Virginians to get active. Individuals can track their personal mileage through WVU Extension’s online tracker. Tracking your distance is as easy as 1-2-3.
- Register for your free account.
- Select the county for which you want your miles to count toward.
- Track your mileage between June 1 and Aug. 31.
Maybe you prefer to ride a bike, swim or play soccer. If walking isn’t your favorite way to workout, don’t despair; you can count 20 minutes of physical activity as one mile.
The winning county will be announced in September. The winner will receive a community sign and designation as a “Live Well West Virginia Community.” The county will also receive a free walkability study provided by WVU Extension Service.
