About This Activity

  Walk Across Sumner is a county-wide plan that includes 28 days of physical activity.  Participants in the Walk Across Sumner program are encouraged to walk 34.5 miles (the distance across Sumner County – corner to corner) either in their own neighborhoods or by hitting local greenways and walking trails at parks throughout the county. We had over 1,400 participants in our 2013 event and raised nearly $5,000 for elementary school physical education programs across the country.  Last year’s project brought people from the entire county together to get moving and get fit!
