Grab your walking shoes and some friends or family and let’s get moving. We are happy to announce the 2nd annual Virtual Faithful Families Walking Challenge. This challenge is designed to get you up and moving with your faith-based community, friends, family, or just by yourself. The challenge will run from July 5–August 1, 2021. The theme for this year’s challenge is reconnection. As we begin to imagine life beyond the pandemic, let’s support each other by staying healthy, staying strong, and finding ways to connect with one another.

The challenge is a fun way to encourage you, your family, and your faith community to be more physically active. Each week of the event, you will receive a newsletter with quick tips and ideas for staying active and connected during this pandemic. Using the Walking Challenge Log, you will keep track of how much you walk each day. For every 10 minutes of walking, you will receive 1 point. And new this year – each week you will find optional activities outlined in the newsletter that will give you the chance to earn additional Connection Points. Each activity is worth 3 points (equivalent to 30 minutes of walking). At the end of the challenge, you will count the total number of points (walking points + Connection Points) you have accumulated throughout the four weeks.

Learn more about the challenge and sign you or a team up through the Faithful Families website.
