Have you ever wanted to walk across Texas? Well, now you can! Special Olympics Texas and AgriLife Extension Service invite you to participate in the physical fitness challenge of a lifetime: walking across the entire state of Texas in eight weeks.

Teams of eight will raise a dollar per mile walked ($104 per participant). The goal is for each team to walk 832 miles during the eight-week period while raising the same amount in donations for SOTX. You don't have to walk; you may complete the challenge through regular exercise, including swimming, golfing, dancing, and even gardening. Join a team today! 

Participants will be able to check their team’s progress each week as they log their mileage on the Walk Across Texas! website. The challenge starts as soon as you sign up. For more information or to register, go to www.sotx.org.
