REGISTRATION

Step 1: Join our Facebook Group: 2019 WAT! 

This group is FREE to join!

Have you got 10 minutes, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes? At least you’ve got minutes! Lets USE those minutes for walk’n minutes.

This group will coincide with the Hood County Walk Across Texas program and will include some involvement from its members. But don’t worry, it can all be done from home except for your exercise – somehow, there’s not an app for that.

I’ll provide recipes, quick tips and information in this group. I’ll also be asking you some questions that will involve some interaction to make this group have the best experience possible.
