Summer Steps is a walking program to motivate West Virginians to get active. Individuals can track their personal mileage through WVU Extension’s online tracker. Tracking your distance is as easy as 1-2-3.
- Register for your free account
- Select the county for which you want your miles to count toward
- Track your mileage between June 1 and Aug. 31
Maybe you prefer to ride bikes, swim, or play soccer. If walking isn’t your favorite way to workout, don’t despair; you can count 20 minutes of physical activity as one mile.
The winning county will be announced in September. The winner will receive a community sign and designation as a “Live Well West Virginia Community.” The County will also receive a free walkability study provided by WVU Extension Service’s Community, Economic and Workforce Development program.
