Description

Join your community in participating in the 100 Miles 100 Days program! MU Extension is challenging you use the 100 days of Summer --from June 14 to September 22-- and get active each day to total 100 miles! You can walk the dog, run, rollerblade, bike, swim, kayak, hike, or whatever you like to do to get to an equivalent of 100 miles by the end of Summer. 

Our main focus is to impact the youth that are out of school for the summer. We know that once you are not having to go to P.E. class or track practice or marching band, youth tend to stay indoors for the summer. We want to change that, combat youth obesity rates, get people acquainted with the active options the city/parks and rec provide, lessen screen time, and create conversations among family and community. It is also a great way to get parents/grandparents involved to model and set good examples of the importance of activity and increase bonding time among families. We want to see people of all ages out in the community being active!

Register and start tracking on your log starting June 14!
