Greene Walks

Registration for our Greene Walks 2021 is now open.

Greene Walks is an 8 week walking program through which participants can increase both their physical and emotional strength, gain new healthy habits and enhance their overall wellness. Walkers can choose to Walk Only and log their daily minutes of walking OR choose to Walk & More and also complete weekly healthy challenges. All participants will receive weekly support emails, be entered into Weekly Drawings (Walk & More) for cash prizes and Grand Prizes upon completion. Join us this year and walk yourself into health! Read what some of last year’s participants had to say…

“I’ve achieved what I never thought I would be able to. I am handicapped and have a bad back and hip along with other injuries to my body but I have struggled through and have achieved what I didn’t think I could.” – 2020 Greene Walks Participant

“I want to say Thank You for doing this challenge again this year and adding “& More”. This year has been challenging; having this activity to focus on, something positive and encouraging, has been a welcome challenge.” – 2020 Greene Walks Participant

“Thank you again for the opportunity to be a part of a great program. I am trying to continue my healthy life style I started with the program.” – 2020 Greene Walks Participant

“I hope this program is repeated again next year. I found it enjoyable and I am walking away with healthier habits!” – 2020 Greene Walks Participant

    More Participant Testimonials

    “Thank you for running this challenge and being so helpful and supportive throughout. I’ve been struggling with weight gain and a huge reduction in activity level since a knee injury and surgery last year, preceded by Lyme disease, and cancer before that. So much SITTING for 3 years! This challenge has helped me get back to a healthy routine better than anything has in a while. And because of the way you did it, my husband and son were willing to join with me, which was really nice. So thank you very much!” – 2020 Greene Walks Participant
