If you are already logging the miles around a local track or neighborhood, why not do it with some motivation from Ellen Trout Zoo. You can have a wild time walking or running on your favorite path or treadmill at home, or with small group practicing social distancing.

You start the challenge on October 1st, 2020. Then just walk or run as much as you can during the month. The event runs through October 31st, 2020.

The virtual walk/run is online, and it all starts with excepting the challenge and clicking this link. For your $35 a ticket each person will get a T-Shirt to commemorate the event from Small to 2X sizes, and a race medal. Then in November stop by the zoo and pick up your T-Shirt and medal. All proceeds benefit the Ellen Trout Zoo & Friends of the Ellen Trout Zoo. The shirt design is bright and colorful (below), and you could even get your kids to join in on the fun.

Challenge a friend or family member to get in on the challenge with you. You might start a movement, knowing that it's all going towards a great cause. If you are watching Dancing with the Stars and rooting for Carol Baskin, this would be a great way to make up for that.

Sign up and join in on the fun, get your official 'brag swag' and show your support for the Ellen Trout Zoo. I think this is a great idea, and I hope that it encourages you to get active.
