Our bodies are gifts from God and physical activity is one of the best ways of caring for our body. During Advent, please join Health Ministries in anticipating the coming of Christ and honoring God with our bodies by participating in The Walk To Bethlehem. We will track our physical activity from Sunday November 30 – Wednesday December 24. The goal is to accumulate 96 miles (the estimated distance from Nazareth to Bethlehem) in any type of physical activity you choose. You may participate individually or create a team and divide the mileage between teammates (a team of 4 people means only 24 miles per person!).
If you do not think you can make 96 miles in this time period, join us anyways! Every step counts! When it comes to physical activity, something is better than nothing! You do not have to go to a gym or run a marathon. Our goal is to be more active. Park farther away, take the stairs, etc. The miles will add up with each step you take!
Let’s make physical activity fun and be more active together! Click here to register. Before November 30th, you will receive a link to a google doc, where you will be able to log your daily mileage and track your progress. There are several apps that will track mileage for you. The iPhone has an app already in the settings section called Nike + iPod. There are several other free options at the app store. If you do not have access to an app or do not have a pedometer, please indicate this on your registration and we will provide one for you.
