Walk Massachusetts FAQs

Where do I walk?

Anywhere you want!  Indoors, outdoors, on a treadmill, at a mall, in your senior center, at a park or nature reserve, or with your local walking club.

How do I track my walking?

Each walker will receive a walk journal.  You can either download it from our website www.mcoaonline.com/walkma or get one from your Council on Aging.

How do you track who’s walked how much?

You need to check in with your Council on Aging/Senior Center with your walk journal at least every two weeks.  We will then collect walk journals at the end of the challenge so you can show off how much you’ve accomplished!

How many people will win a gift card?

We will choose 25 people from those who complete the challenge to win a $50 Visa gift card, then 25 more to win a $25 Amazon card, and then 25 additional for a $10 Dunkin’ gift card.

Can I complete the challenge on multiple teams?

No.  Each person may only be entered into the drawing once.

When will I know if I won a gift card?

Councils on Aging must turn in their walkers’ information by October 15th.  Winners will be notified no later than November 15th.

How many Councils on Aging will win?

We will draw 10 Councils for a $500 prize to go toward future fitness programs.

How many entries can each Council on Aging get?

Councils may receive as many entries as teams or individuals who complete the challenge.  The more entries, the more chances a Council has to win!

Can a Council on Aging win multiple prizes?

No.  Each Council can only be drawn once.

Can staff and Board members participate?

Yes!  COA staff and board members are welcome to participate.
