College Station, TX – For those considering how to become more physically active, walking across Texas could be a good place to start according to research from the Family & Community Health Unit of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The study now published in BMC Public Health confirmed the effectiveness of the Walk Across Texas! Program to increase and maintain physical activity over 8-weeks, even in inactive or low-active participants.
Welcome to Walk Across Texas! Thank you for taking the first step towards a healthier you! For over 20 years, these steps have been supported and surrounded by friends, family, co-workers and thousands of others — all thanks to the Walk Across Texas! program.
There are two distinct versions of the program Walk Across Texas! Youth and Walk Across Texas! Adult. Let’s learn a little more about each and how to get started!
Walk Across Texas! Youth is an eight-week program designed to help our youngest Texans establish the habit of regular physical activity using a fun and motivating team approach. Each team may include an unlimited number of youth participants, all working together towards the goal of 832 miles to make their way across the state of Texas.
We recommend WAT! Youth for schools, after-school clubs, 4-H clubs, and much more! Adult staff and teachers can also create adult teams to compete against the youth.
