Back by popular demand is FPWR's Harvesting Hope Distance Challenge! Nearly 100 virtual trotters joined us for the challenge last year covering a whopping 3,750 miles during the 7-week period. How far can we get this year? That's up to you!
Kids and adults alike share how fun and motivating they found last year's challenge. "We were so proud of Addy's motivation during the challenge," said mom, Bobbi Pogrant. "Each day Addy got up early to go walking before school, walked during her recesses and walked most nights too - all her idea!"
Declan, age 9, loved checking the leaderboard. According to his mom, Allison Shelton, he would check the leaderboard regularly, then set his goal for the week to help him move up. "We found the entire family walking more during the challenge," says Allison, "it was a great activity to keep us outside and active during the lead up to Thanksgiving!"
