 Support your local school and your health this spring by participating in the seventh annual Walk Across Williamson challenge. The countywide contest is designed to promote physical activity among Williamson County students and residents.

Williamson County schools are eligible to work in teams and compete for school mini-grants. The goal is to be active for 60 minutes every day during the month of March. Team members can record their physical activity on a log, which is available here.

Individual participants will also be able to record their activities through the month and are encouraged to set goals for physical activity.

An event to celebrate the completion of Walk Across Williamson is scheduled for Saturday, April 11 at 10 a.m. at Pinkerton Park in Franklin. The celebration will include special guests, giveaways and drawings for prizes.
