Knox Walks

The Knoxville Track Club Walking Program

FALL 2013

 

Knox Walks is a fitness walking program aimed at helping participants make a healthy lifestyle change through regular walking. If you are looking to walk with a group and add more activity to your day, then please join us for exercise and camaraderie. Participants are asked to commit to attending one group walk every week for 9 weeks. In return, walkers will receive weekly educational material on fitness and nutrition, a t-shirt, free admission to a health seminar and many other goodies.

This session we are partnering with the American Diabetes Association and will be participating as a team in their Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes on October 20. $10.00 of your registration fee will be donated to the American Diabetes Association and you'll have the opportunity to raise additional money for ADA if you so choose (More details about the Knoxville Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes).

Kickoff at the Knoxville Zoo (Our Kickoff will coincide with the Step Out Kick-Off) - Sunday, August 18 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

If you plan to attend the Kickoff, please RSVP by August 14 to Erin Moran at 865) 524-7868 ext 3342 or send an email to Erin with the number of people in your party. All those in attendance can register for the Step Out Walk before the Kickoff Party or at the Kickoff Party at the zoo.
