For nine weeks, the Oswegoland Park District challenged this community to get out and walk, run or wheel chair their way to a healthier lifestyle with Monday Miles. Early on, the community-wide goal was set at 2,500 miles, but the individual goals were as
diverse as the people coming out each week.
Some people set their own mileage marker goal for the summer and even showed up for both sessions every Monday. Others were trying to get faster. Families had visions of spending quality time together, while friends used it to catch up. While, the kids wanted to earn a cool shirt to wear as a badge of honor representing their summer dedication. Whatever the reason, participants did their best to reach the community mark.
On Monday, August 8th, Monday Miles closed out its second season falling 95 miles short of the goal with 2405.5 miles. Fear not Oswegoland because this drives us to dig even deeper so that in the Summer of 2017, we achieve the goal set for this amazing community.
