Walk With Me in the Berkshires, a program of Berkshire Health Systems, will celebrate its 17th year when it goes live at 10:00 am, Tuesday, March 24, 2020. That’s when registration opens for this innovative program.
This program is meant for people who either live or work in Berkshire County.
The purpose of Walk With Me is to promote a healthier lifestyle by walking. Teams of 2 to 20 members will record and submit their movement totals over a six week period. Not only will they be able to see how far they have traveled, but they will also see how they compare to the other teams.
Registration is available only through iberkshires.com, and organizers expect all 2400 places to be filled within the first day!
There is no registration fee, each registrant will receive a free step counter and an online step recording program.
