DSCN1167How many steps does it take to reach 27 miles? That is the question you can answer and it will be a win for all involved.  I am thrilled to kick off my second Trek Across Maryland for Cool Kids Campaign with this unique giveaway. My event is actually a minimum of 41 miles a day, a combination of 27 miles hiking plus 14 miles or more biking every day. We are focusing on the hiking part here. I am doing this to tell the story of one Cool Kid each day while encouraging them to beat their disease like I did when I was younger. While raising funds for our many children and family programs, I also want to encourage your fitness.

On our first trek day, Sunday August 9, 2015 you can win this Gamin Vivofit2. See below for details how to enter our giveaway as there are 3 key parts. Also see a sample of my new website widget with an interactive map for my route Day 1. My new website will be online by Saturday afternoon with complete event details.
