Sign up for this FREE event from Faithful Families!

Monday, June 8 – Sunday, July 5

We are excited to announce the first-ever ALL Faithful Families challenge event! Join Faithful Families and partners across the country for the Virtual Walking Challenge, as we stay connected while being physically distanced. During these uncertain times, let’s support each other by staying healthy, staying strong, and moving more.

What is the Virtual Walking Challenge?
The challenge is a fun way to encourage you, your family, and your faith community to be more physically active. Each week of the event, you will receive a newsletter with quick tips and ideas for staying active and connected during this pandemic. Using the Walking Challenge Log, you will keep track of how much you walk each day. For every 10 minutes of walking, you will receive 1 point. At the end of the challenge, you will count the total number of points you have accumulated throughout the four weeks.

How long is the event?
This is a four-week event that begins on Monday, June 8, and ends on Sunday, July 5. During these four weeks, you will be challenged to increase how much you walk from week to week.

Who can participate?
Anyone can take part in this challenge! Only adults are eligible for prizes. Adults are welcome to walk with their children, but the challenge was created for adults.

Be sure to check with your doctor before you start a new walking program. Check out these helpful tips for walking more.

Is there a cost to participate?
This is a free event! Materials will be available for all to download on the website.

How do I sign up?

Where do I get the materials for the event?
Materials needed to begin the challenge are available on the Faithful Families website. Weekly newsletters will be emailed to you and will also be made available on the website. If you are participating as part of a team, your Team Leader will receive the materials and newsletters by email and then distribute them to you.

How do I stay connected during the event?
