Special to the Times Vedette

Seasoned walkers and newbies are invited to participate in a 100-mile walking challenge from June 1 to Sept. 9. The challenge, which is being coordinated by Arianne Steenblock and Sara Van Effen, involves walking 100 miles in 100 days. The challenge is on the honor system, but a tracking sheet will be provided with registration, and organizers say any fitness app, pedometer or other tool can work, too. 

The Virtual Kickoff Meeting is May 30 from noon to 12:45 p.m. Participants will set goals, introduce themselves and get motivated. They can also expect follow-up support including lots of encouragement, milestone celebrations and some surprise extras. Cost is $30 per household, and deadline is May 30.  Register at https://squareup.com/appointments/book/classes/9sy1snxkvyj53g/LD7SWKA07FDT9/classes. Anyone with questions can contact Steenblock at 515-537-5330.
