Walk this Way

October 31, 2012 – March 12, 2013

Juliette Gordon Low once said, “It is of paramount importance to teach the young citizen to assume responsibility for her own development and health.”

We at Girl Scouts are asking you to help us as we continue to teach our young citizens of middle Tennessee the importance of healthy living. “Data from 2009-2010 indicates that over 78 million U.S. adults and about 12.5 million (16.9%) children and adolescents are obese.” Let’s lead the next Girl Scout century as the difference in these statistics.

Walking is the simplest form of exercise, and it is right at our feet. Walk this Way and join us this year and into the next, as we virtually walk from Savannah to Nashville. Along with creating your own troop activities take part in our FIZEEK! Fit Days, where we will hike trails in one of our beautiful local parks, walk the green way, take a grocery store tour and much more! Celebrate your group’s accomplishments at our finale event – Walk this Way 5kin March.

Purpose:

Girls need to feel confident physically and mentally. Our healthy living initiative helps girls sort through the challenges of growing up while teaching them good nutritional and exercise habits and the benefits of an active lifestyle.

Program Goal:

The goal for this program is to provide our Girl Scouts with the information and activities essential to assume responsibility of their own physical and mental wellbeing, while also encouraging members of their families and community to assume responsibility for their own mental and physical health.

Important Dates to Remember:

  • Participants are encouraged to register by October 31, 2012.
  • Official Program runs from October 31, 2012 until March 12, 2012.
  • FIZEEK! Fit Days are special group programs that will take place in the months of November, December, January and February. Look for these dates on our calendar and in special email newsletters, once you are registered.
  • Our first annual Walk this Way 5k will take place on Saturday March 9, 2013, at Camp Sycamore Hills.
