Walk Massachusetts


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

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

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

This year, the challenge is open to everyone in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts aged 5 and up.  Walk with your family or friends, or on your own! All we ask is that those under age 60 “sponsor” an older adult – just enter the name of a parent, grandparent, neighbor or friend (no fundraising is involved).

The challenge runs from May 1 to October 31, 2022. In that time, as 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 their challenge, your Council on Aging gets an entry to win up to $1000 for use with fitness programming.  The more who walk, the better their chances!

Here’s how it works:

Go to and register starting April 1.  Then choose a challenge based on a Commonwealth of Massachusetts fun fact.  It could be from walking 88 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, enter your walking on between May 1 and October 31 and you’ll be entered to win at each milestone (five chances to win total)!  It’s that easy!

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