Walk Around the World with Jesus

Today we learned about a new program that we'll be taking part in! We're going to be logging the miles we walk with the hopes of walking enough miles to circle the equator. There is a kickoff on Sunday and any student that shows up will receive a free t-shirt. The goal for each student for the year is 100 miles. To track the miles, you can simple count minutes (we'll count 20 minutes of walking as 1 mile), use an app, or walk a known distance (for example, the boardwalk is 1.5 miles). I have an app on my phone called "Map My Run" which would be super handy for tracking miles. If you don't have a smart phone, you can also use the app on the Map My Run website - you can create a route and it will tell you how many miles it is. Any time your child reaches 5 miles, let me know and I will log it for the school's total.
