This is a great opportunity to join your fellow walkers and learn more about how you can boost your Walktober experience with the Healthy Choice Challenge and #WalktoberSU Instagram Contest. During the whole month of October, you are invited to join Monday Mile walks.
To wrap up this month-long initiative, the most active participants will be invited to celebrate their accomplishments at the Walktober Awards Luncheon on Monday, Nov. 7.
