Earn Money for Your Council on Aging, and Possibly Win a $50 Gift Card!

Lace up your sneakers – the Walk Massachusetts challenge is back!

Your participation helps your COA win money for fitness programs and gives you the chance to win one of several prizes!

The challenge runs from May 1 to September 30. In that time, if you complete the challenge, you are entered into a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card, a $25 Amazon gift card or a $10 Dunkin’ gift card . . . and for each person who completes the challenge, your Council on Aging gets an entry to win up to $1000 for use with fitness programming.  The more of us who walk, the better the chances!

Here’s how it works:

You choose a challenge based on a Commonwealth of Massachusetts fun fact on the registration/tracking form.  It could be from walking 65 days during the challenge period to walking 126.5 miles to walking 362,000 steps. Choose your challenge based on your walking abilities, or challenge yourself to reach a higher goal!  Be your own guide as to what you can do.  You can walk inside, outside, on a track or a treadmill – wherever you want!  Then, track your walking between May 1 and September 30 either on our online form, or use our handy-dandy walking journal.  Submit your form at the end of the challenge, and be entered to win!  It’s that easy!

Councils on Aging will receive an entry for each person who completes the challenge.  The COA with the most completions will win $1000 toward future programming!

The first 500 people to sign up with receive a nifty, lightweight backpack and reflective slap bracelet.  And we all know the drill by now – practice safety at all times, with masks and social distancing, walk in good lighting and on even surfaces.

So what are you waiting for?  Join the challenge – register today!
