Whether you head to a local trail, take a run around the neighborhood, or walk on your treadmill - every mile counts!

What is Share a Step?
Share a Step is our virtual fitness event that invites individuals of all ages to set a mileage goal for the week of May 21st through May 27th. You can get your mileage in with a walk outside, a bike ride around the neighborhood or a run on the treadmill, just make sure you log it! Take pictures of each exercise and tag us on Facebook or Instagram with #shareastep to show your progress and challenge others to stay accountable.
Virtually Travel the distance of one of four local trails or you can set your own distance goals if you do not want to try for one of these tiers - it's up to you! All we ask is that you have fun and be safe by following all State, County Health and social distancing guidelines related to the COVID-19 virus.
Whatever your goal is, take a step each day towards achieving it and help raise funds for this important cause at the same time!
