Walk around the world with your community this summer! Between June 1 and August 31, our goal is to walk a grand sum of 52,000,000 steps! This will take us across the 7 continents.  You can walk around a park, on your treadmill, or even around your home. Every step counts! There are many ways to track your steps. You can use your own personal step tracking devices, including smart watches, or pick up a free pedometer at the Library to track your steps.

Register and track your steps in the Beanstack app.  In each continent, you will track your steps in groups of 10,000 or 5,000. When combined with others, this will take us across each continent and eventually around the world.   You can see how well everyone is doing by stopping in the library and looking at our progress on a large world map.  You can download the Beanstack Tracker app in the Apple App Store or in the GooglePlay store.

Sometimes we forget that we have many beautiful places to walk right here in our own community.   Have you tried the trails at Bendix Woods County Park or Spicer Lake Nature Preserve?  You can walk right here in New Carlisle at Memorial Park and at Bourissa Hills.  To see more places to walk locally, watch the walking series on our YouTube channel.
