On a beautiful sunny Monday in September, Healthy Monday Syracuse in partnership with Syracuse University Wellness Initiative, kicked off Walktober! The Kickstart event was a chance for people to come and register for Walktober, which officially starts October 1, 2017. You can check out some pictures from the event below.
Participants took pictures with Otto the Orange, hung out with puppy friends from Pet Partners of CNY, made trail mix at an awesome DIY station and played Healthy Monday Syracuse trivia to score great giveaways. T-shirts, water bottles, and Healthy Monday totes were given out as well!
If you haven’t registered for Walktober, you still can. The last day for Walktober registration is October 6th and you can sign up here. Also remember to download the official Walktober app to create a team, track your steps, check your leader board rankings and motivate yourself and your teammates to keep moving during the 31-day challenge.
Once Walktober starts you can also join us every Monday in October at noon at the Syracuse University Schine Student Center for our weekly 30-minute Monday Mile walks. As a bonus, Pet Partners and their furry friends will be joining our Monday Miles each week! Check out the official Walktober website for more information.
