Walk Across Texas!

About Walk Across Texas!

Walk Across Texas! is an 8-week program designed to help Texans establish the habit of regular physical activity. Each adult team may include up to 8 team members, all working together to walk the 832-mile goal.

Each team member’s favorite physical activities are logged as ‘miles walked’ in our online challenge tracker and contribute toward the team’s mileage total. In schools, educators and school staff can host a friendly competition to see who can walk the most miles or “walk” across Texas the fastest. This is a fun way to stay connected with others and support one another to stay healthy and motivated.

Program Components

  • 8-week virtual team competition.
  • Access to the Howdy Health platform to track progress. Each member of the team records their progress daily.
  • Other events and activities to customize the program
