I started this challenge 4 years ago as a way to encourage activity. The idea was, and still is, that all of us can find at least 20 minutes a day for exercise. That is how long it takes for the average person to walk a mile
For the first three years the challenge was free to enter. Some would enter and never even start. This year I decided to charge an entry fee of $25, with $20 of it going to a local non-profit (in this case the Ventura Land Trust) in support of open space. Would people sign up?
Ultimately we had 31 challengers, and thus raised $610 for the VLT.
Of the 31 participants:
19 traveled the minimum mile a day
2 missed only 1 day each
4 missed a few days but kept trying
All together the challengers logged 2,772.41 miles. That’s an average of 81.54 miles a day!
