AgriLife challenges students, adults to ‘Walk Across Texas’

Floyd County Texas A&M AgriLife Service Walk Across Texas

The following news release was submitted by Floyd County’s Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service:
FLOYDADA – We area excited to partner with Floydada Independent School District Duncan Elementary students and FCISD staff for Walk Across Texas! Youth and Adult Programs.
The Walk Across Texas program is an online physical activity promotion program offered by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension designed to help Texans be more active. Teams are encouraged to work together towards the goal of virtually traveling across Texas, that’s 832 miles in 8 weeks!
Better Living for Texans was able to provide pedometers for students to track their miles during the school week. Students have an opportunity to earn Spring Break bonus miles this week by completing challenges on their Spring Break Bingo sheets. Each box completed earns a mile. Forms were sent home Friday 3/11, but if you need a replacement please stop by the County Extension Office at 122 E. California Street, Floydada.

Students will be awarded prizes throughout the contest as their team reaches the 100, 200, 400, 600, and 800 mile marks. The class with the most miles at the end of the challenge will be rewarded with a Pizza Party from Main Street Pizza. And all teams that reach the 832 mile mark will get a cool treat from Dairy Queen!
Our adult team will be awarded prizes throughout the challenge as well, thanks to our wonderful local sponsors Whirlwind Nutrition, Lizzie & Atticus Artistry, Ray Ray’s Cafe, Nutthouse Designs, Azteca Cafe, Social Fly TX, Texas Donuts Floydada, Kurbside Eatz and Hair by Leigh.
