Walk Across Sumner Kick-Off Event Sept. 8

Update: This event happens rain or shine...it will start in the Pickel Field House.

Vol State, in cooperation with the Sumner County Health Department, will officially kick off the 2012 Walk Across Sumner Event.   It’s Saturday September 8th.  The place is the Vol State Gallatin Campus between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m..  There will be a children’s obstacle course, a walking route, inflatables, music, exercise fitness classes and more. Participants will be encouraged to walk 34 and a half miles, the distance across Sumner County, during a four-week period.  This fundraiser will benefit elementary physical education programs across the county.  You can walk on greenways in your neighborhood, or at walking trails and parks throughout the county.  For more information, visit www.sumnertn.org

Here's a recent story in the Tennessean about the event:

I cannot wait for this event! Having a gym on campus will help everyone meet their goal of 34.5 miles for the month. I hope a lot of people are planning to come! :)
