Mark Wilson’s 100 Mile Walk

HAPPENING APRIL 2021

With in-person school, sports, and extracurricular activities canceled, being active as a family unit is more critical than ever. Thankfully we’ve got the 2nd Annual Mark Wilson’s 100 Mile Walk to keep us going strong!

“Look, life is stressful right now. We’ve all had to adjust to a new way of living, parenting, doing business. Let’s put some focus on ourselves and our health for this month. If I can do it, you can. I felt great last May during the 100 Mile Walk—so why not? Let’s do it again!” — Mark

Mark Wilson’s 100 Mile Walk is a month-long community campaign meant to raise awareness for healthy lifestyles, walkable communities, and all the benefits of incorporating movement into ordinary life. It challenges people of all ages and abilities to walk 100 miles outside during the month of April – that’s a little over 3 miles a day, folks.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Commit. Complete the form below.
  2. Sign up. Join Mark’s Strava Club HERE to track your progress (Strava is a free mobile fitness tracking app).
  3. Walk. Whether it’s alone or with your family, to the grocery store, to pick up take-out food, or to walk the dog, it doesn’t matter, just aim for 3 miles a day to reach the 100-mile goal.
  4. Celebrate. Walk with your family? Walk to get away from it all? It all counts.
  5. Be Kind – Commit to spreading kindness at least once. Think: sidewalk or driveway chalk art, picking up trash, delivering a positive letter to a friend or neighbor, etc. Get creative!

HELPFUL THINGS TO KNOW

  • The 100 Mile Walk is both free and awesome.
  • If you don’t have Strava on your phone, download the app, create a free account, search for “Mark Wilson’s 100 Mile Walk” club and then join it. Every time you head out for a walk, hit start in the app and then stop when you’re done. Super easy.

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) strongly recommends continued effort to stop the spread. The following steps need to be taken together for the best protection.
  • Health Check – Self-monitor and stay home if you’re feeling sick.
  • Wear a mask – Take it off when you eat or drink, then put it back on, even outside.
  • Physically Distanced – Keep six feet apart as much as you can.
  • Wash Hands – Wash hands regularly. 20 seconds with soap and water.

Norte also supports socializing outside in well-ventilated areas and getting a vacinne as soon as available.  If we all work together, we will beat this pandemic.
