Tomorrow, April 24, is National Walk at Lunch Day and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska will contribute $20 to the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation for each organization that registers to walk. The Foundation will use the money to maintain and expand some of the state’s 1,236 miles of trails.
Last year, nearly 37,000 Nebraskans from 366 schools and organizations in 70 communities registered to take a 30-minute walk at lunch…with most walking with their business or school school colleagues.
Those interested in this year’s walk…including individuals…can visit www.nebraskablue.com to register. Participants choose a time and place to walk that is most convenient, perhaps even walking one of the state’s many trails, and they can even register following the walk.
