In September, we have an exciting opportunity for you to get fit and raise money for your delegation, the Meet in the Middle (MiM) program and Special Olympics Texas. We’re going to Walk Across Texas!

We’re not going to actually Walk Across Texas, but over eight weeks, you and seven of your friends will walk, run, work in the garden or otherwise exercise enough to cover 832 miles—that’s the distance between El Paso and Orange.

Each team of 8 walkers will have a minimum fundraising goal of $832, and a goal of walking or exercising the equivalent of 13 miles per week to make the 832 mile goal. Here’s the great thing—any SOTX sport counts, even bocce!

Funds raised by members of a delegation or MiM program will be shared equally with SOTX after expenses are transferred to their authorized SOTX account (approximately 40% of the proceeds raised will go back to your team). This is a great opportunity to raise funds for your delegation and SOTX.

Each team member will receive a wristband, drawstring pack and a Walk Across Texas t-shirt once they achieve their goal.

We know that many of you will get creative in how you cover those miles. Show us what you’re doing to Walk Across Texas—send your photos or short videos to communications@sotx.org. We’ll post them on this blog and on our Facebook page. I can’t wait to see what creative things you’ll do.

I’ve already signed up as part of a team, and I hope you’ll also take the challenge to WALK ACROSS TEXAS!  Go to http://www.sotx.org/walkacrosstexas to get started.
