Main Mankato, Kan. 785-378-3191 ..... i ........... Walk Kansas 2010 to start March 7 Winter weather may still be in the forecast, but Walk Kansas 2010 is scheduled for March 7 to May 1. The goal is to joining friends, co- workers and family members to form teams of six to log minutes of exercise equivalent to covering the 423 mile distance across Kansas in eight weeks to make improving health easy and fun. Walk Kansas was introduced in 2002 as a walking program, but has been expanded to include 10 consecu- tive minute segments of a variety of physical activities to match partici- pants' interests, skills, and abilities. Examples of qualifying activities in- clude aerobics, ballroom dancing, bi- cycling, swimming, tennis, canoeing, some team sports, strengthening exer- cises and mowing the lawn with a push mover, The fitness challenge is structured so that even beginners can be success- ful. Those who are new to physical activity and wanting to improve health are encouraged to schedule 10 minute exercise breaks to accomplish the 30 minutes of physical activity recom- mended at least five days a week. Taking 10 minute exercise breaks also can be a good way to add physical activity to hectic schedules. The majority of Walk Kansas teams are successful in covering the distance. Many also report weight loss, muscle toning, increased energy, stress man- agement and a more optimistic out- look resulting from physical activity. Many also report a greater awareness about choosing foods that contribute to health. In addition to logging physical ac- tivity, participants have the option to note daily consumption of health-pro- moting fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that only 19 per- cent of Kansans currently meet the daily recommendations for fruit and vegetable consumption. More than half of Kansans fail to reach weekly recommendations for physical activ- ity. Many chronic illnesses, such as dia- betes and heart disease, can be pre- vented or managed successfully with diet and physical activity. In Kansas, more than 70 percent of healthcare costs are attributed to chronic illnesses. Walk Kansas is offered by K-State Research and Extension. An added at- traction is the weekly newsletter which features food and nutrition tips, reci- pes and motivational success stories. Walk Kansas attracts more than 20,000 Kansans each year.
