A total of 10
schools, 63 teachers and 1,075 students in Logan County schools
participated in this activity, walking a total of over 48 miles.
In random drawings among those participating, three classes were
awarded bags of trail mix for their classes to snack on during their
walks. Winners were the fourth-grade class at Washington-Monroe
Elementary in Lincoln, taught by Bev Wunderlin; the kindergarten
class at Emden Elementary, taught by Sarah Fleck; and the
first-grade class taught by Amy Neece at Northwest Elementary.
Walk Day is an annual event in May, sponsored by University of
Illinois Extension. For information about how to get involved next
year, contact Patty Huffer at the Logan County Extension office,
