Polk team walking challenge set to kickoff in January

By CATHERINE HUSBAND

FORT POLK, La. — It will be Installation Management Command versus Medical Command, Soldiers versus Families, civilians versus active duty, one unit versus another unit for bragging rights in the 10K a Day Team Walking Challenge!

The challenge tasks individuals to meet their personal goal of walking 10,000 steps a day and then exceed it as their fitness improves. Past challengers have reported weight loss, lowered blood pressure and lowered averaged blood sugars by simply participating in the challenge and increasing their daily activity levels for the 90-day reporting period.

Take this time to organize your teams. The challenge begins on Jan. 22 — right after the New Year when many people resolve to live healthier and shed a few pounds.
